The Campus and Location

Brisbane is Australia's New World City; with a diverse multi cultural population of 1.8 million, making Brisbane a centre of creativity and invention.  The city provides students with forward-thinking educational providers and world-class research facilities all in a sub-tropical climate ideal for an outdoor lifestyle.

Brisbane is a safe and friendly city with a generous community spirit and weather that creates an outdoor lifestyle. Australia's low crime rates make it one of the safest countries compared with almost anywhere in the world and with Brisbane's comparatively lower living expenses and tuition costs with other developed countries, are all factors that make Brisbane one of the most liveable cities in the world.

James Cook University Brisbane Campus is a modern high rise building, centrally located in the Central Business District (CBD) located on Queen Street.  Students have access to study space, computer stations, high speed internet and WiFi, leisure and activity rooms, all within walking distance of the riverfront, Queen Street's main shopping mall, city library and the many shops, parks and cafes that our beautiful city has to offer. The campus is easily accessible via the many forms of public transport which is heavily discounted to students.
