For the one semester we have spent in UQ, Schonell 77 has provided us good services, including free breakfast, a contemporary movie room and cooking classes. Comparing to other student accommodations, Schonell 77 has profound services offered at a reasonable rent. They try their best to help us during the stay and make it as our home-away-from-home.

Living in Schonell 77 makes you connect with other students from all other the world. One of my favourite places is the gym area where you can work out for free and meet new people with same interests every day.

Tracey McKenzie – Students MUM

Schonell has been the perfect choice for us. It is so close to the University that it is in walkable distance if need be. The accomodation is simple but ample for the Uni Student. The Staff are helpful, approachable and keep a strict regime for the tenants. This alone gives us peace of mind in knowing that our child is in safe hands. I highly recommend Schonell 77 as a top choice for your childs accomodation.

I chose Schonell 77 as it is within walking distance to UQ campus and located just beside the bus stop, making it convenient for commuting around. Besides, the management team is friendly, helpful and attentive to students’ needs. Schonell 77 is a good option for students who are looking for an accommodation near UQ.


Living at Schonell has been very convenient as a university student. With the bus stop right outside, UQ and Brisbane city are both very easy to reach. At Schonell there is also someone you haven’t met so it’s the perfect place to meet people if you’re a social butterfly.

As a Ph.D. candidate at the School of Civil Engineering at UQ, I have had the great opportunity to live in Brisbane for four years. Within the four years, the best living experience I ever had is in Schnoell 77 student apartment, where the accommodation, gym, laundry, and even movie theatre, etc. are all available for students. Schnoell 77 is not only very close to St. Lucia campus of UQ but also all the facilities, including Toowong shopping center, Postoffice, beautiful park, etc. Living here can provide you so much convenience. Their staffs are friendly, caring and helpful. It is my real luck to pick up such a great place to live before my Ph.D. graduation.

Schonell 77 is just an inspiring awe to me. I am Charu Deepika, from India who stepped out of the home for the first time. I never had home sickness at all because I just felt my flatmates as my family soo caring and respectful. On top of which the management people and the land owner themselves were sweet and responsive. They all treated me as their kid, I am enjoying the glow of friendship here, students at the gym throw a welcome smile at you just like your mom walking till the door. My room is also very good for study, well-lighted and ventilated. The movie nights are awesome for people to relax and take a breath from busy university schedules. Coming from a joint family, I felt very happy to have everyone together in free breakfast sessions. People are open to share your happiness in Schonell, feeling like home providing all the facilities needed. This place and people around transforms me into much caring and considerate person. I love my Schonell mates!!!
