Your Apartment

The Cube Hall has 86 self-contained apartments with the options of 5 bedroom, 3 bedroom, and studio units. We have an apartment that has been modified for students with disabilities.

Inside Your Aparment

Each apartment has a bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen with all the appliances (microwave, refrigerator/freezer, stovetop and oven). Five bedroom and three bedroom apartments have a separate living area furnished with a dining table, chairs, couch, TV stand and coffee table. Studio apartments have a dining table and chairs and a TV stand. We have single sex and mixed gender apartments.

Tenants pay a Chattel Fee of $140 for items you receive on arrival. Each apartment has a set of chattels which the tenants make take with them when they leave. Your chattels will include the following items:

  • Electric jug and toaster
  • Cutlery, crockery and dish rack
  • Cooking utensils, pots and pan
  • Plunger, toilet brush and rubbish bin
  • One mattress protector each

Inside Your Bedroom

Bedrooms are furnished with a double bed (singles in studios), a wardrobe, a desk and office chair, and a pin board. They all have a window with a blind.

You may bring small items of furniture with you, such as small sets of shelves and under-bed storage (there is a 135mm high gap between the floor and bed). Apart from a mattress protector, bedding is not provided, and you will need your own towels and bathmats, coat hangers, drawing pins, and cleaning materials.

There is one power socket in each bedroom, so we suggest you bring a multiboard with you. If you would like to bring a heater with you, it must comply with the safety inspection requirements AS/NZS 3760. No liquid fuelled or gas heaters are permitted. Please take energy effiiciency into consideration when choosing a heater.
