About this property

Urbanest Swanston Street is a brand new contemporary student accommodation located on 599 Swanston Street, just a stone's throw away from University of Melbourne & 5mins walk to RMIT University. Choose from a range of two-bedroom studio, 1 bedroom, studios and en suite shared flats. Also, if you are studying at RMIT or Monash College then you can be under 18yrs and still apply! The property also comes packed with brilliant features to ensure that you have an incredibly great time with your friends, when you’re not busy studying. Enjoy BBQ sessions on the terrace or the large social place on the ground. The fully equipped gym on the rooftop not only allows you to enjoy a good view but helps you stay fit too! The cinema room in the property is another great feature, perfect for those weekends that you do not want to step out but relax at home with your friends. Melbourne's CBD is close too, bringing the best of the city to your doorstep! 

All rooms at Urbanest Swanston Street student accommodation come fully furnished with a comfortable bed, ample storage space for all your belongings, a study station and a fully fitted bathroom. The room is all equipped to ensure smooth running from your morning to night. Not having to share your bathroom with rest of the flat will save you oodles of time in the morning! Beds we feel are rather too comfortable for long study hours, ergo the study space. If you are in a shared apartment, you will be sharing the kitchen with other flatmates and also the living area. It is not only a perfect way to socialise but also imagine the in numerous home parties that you can throw. However, if you are a mature student or simply looking for an independent space then the studio or the one bedroom apartment is more for you at this Swanston Street accommodation. Enjoy a space all to yourself, with your own private kitchen, bed, personal study space, fully fitted bathroom and great storage solution for all your belongings. When not studying you can catch up with your friends in the various social spaces in the building. Gym on the rooftop is a perfect way to start your day!

If you are a movie enthusiast then the cinema room is going to be your favourite spot in the property. Just because you are at university, you do not need to miss your favourite movies. One better, enjoy them here with the rest of the students in the building!

When in Melbourne city you must visit St Kilda, approximately 20mins away from the CBD, the beautiful beach and the broadwalk over-looking Port Phillips Bay is the ultimate thing to enjoy on a sunny weekend.
