Students helping students. 24 x 7, there is always someone here for you.

Resident Assistants (RAs) are students who live onsite, employed by Iglu to offer after hours support, run activities and help create a great atmosphere.

This is one of the unique advantages of living in student accommodation. The RAs are always available for Iglu residents to talk to about personal issues or any daily stresses. They are trained in a number of areas including senior first aid and emergency management.

In addition, they work with the Iglu team to organise a jam-packed programme of events and activities for students that aim to bring residents together, increase cultural awareness, encourage learning and teach new skills – all in a fun and supportive environment. These events include:

  • Academic (e.g. spelling bees, CV writing skills)
  • Cultural (e.g. city tours, international food nights)
  • Social (e.g. movie nights, BBQs)
  • Wellbeing (Pilates, boxercise, R U OK days)

You can check out a full sample of the cool events and activities here.

If you are interested in applying to be a Resident Assistant, please chat to the General Manager at the your Iglu property in Sydney or Brisbane.

    • I am student of Sydney Uni. I really enjoy my time at Iglu Chatswood. The room is well-designed and fully-equipped. Iglu holds all kinds of activities every week. I could meet people from different countries and make friends with them. Iglu Chatswood is a nice place for students.
      Wanlu, Sydney University
    • As an international student in a new city, choosing to live in Iglu was the best decision. The accommodation as a whole is a great place for students, and there is no place better to live in than Chatswood – it's so convenient! Having the accommodation right next to the train station helps heaps too!
      Veronica, Raffles
    • I chose to live in Iglu for many reasons. First was the location it's like 2 minutes walking to the station, and approximately 10 minutes to my college. As a student that was what I am looking for! A convenient place with friendly people and a great location.
      Rashed, SIBT College
    • The reason why I love to live in Iglu Chatswood is I love Chatswood. First, Iglu is located in Chatswood and near the train station. From Iglu to train station I just need 3 minutes, it is very convenient and I do not have to get up so early. Besides, there are many different kinds of shops, restaurants and big shopping centres in Chatswood so I do not have to walk so far to buy things. Furthermore, the environment of the rooms is really good. There is a long desk in the room, which is really good for study. And I can have my own bathroom and a comfortable bed. Then, the staff here are very friendly and nice. If I have any questions, they will try their best to help me.
