How to secure the perfect student accommodation

You’ve been accepted into the next intake at Bond University – congrats! Now, to find the right home. We know just how stressful it can be to move house, enrol into uni and secure the right place to live on student rates! This is where we come into play. 

Rent Central has numerous apartment complexes located within walking distance to Bond Uni – ideal, right? Not only that, we give you the option to rent a room from one of our luxurious apartments – ideal, right?

We get that finding the RIGHT accommodation may not be top-of-mind for you, which is why we make it easy.

Saving the pennies
Evert penny counts when you’re a student! So, when it comes to renting your home-away-from-home, it’s important to get value for money. Our shared accommodation platform allows you the affordability you deserve while also bunking in with a buddy as well. Not only that, but you’ll be living in a luxurious, waterfront residence on the renowned Gold Coast. Now you really can have Champagne taste on a beer budget!

A secure building means safe belongings. And we all know replacing laptops and ipads isn’t something any student wants to do! Not only that, it gives you (and mum and dad) peace of mind knowing you live in a secure environment. Well, breathe a sigh of relief because at Rent Central, we have numerous buildings that are secure with security gates and entry PLUS 24 hour on-site management.

Getting from A to B
What student has easy access to cars?! I know I certainly didn’t when I was ay uni – who can afford that? That’s why our luxurious student accommodation on the Gold Coast is perfectly positioned allowing walking access to the Bond University campus. Imagine the bus fares you’ll save!

Down time 
When you’re not studying (which isn’t very often) or exploring all the Gold Coast has to offer, you’ll want to be relaxing by a lagoon style swimming pool, right? TICK. Or is it a steam room and plunge pool? TICK. Perhaps you might like to enjoy the lakeside BBQ and entertainment areas? Well, TICK. If you haven’t picked up what I’ve been putting down, our student accommodation is luxurious – and so it should be. You deserve it.

Where to from here?
Simply visit and search through our student accommodation availability. Or, feel free to call our property management superstars who will take you through an inspection now!

So, what are you waiting for?

Apartment Cleaning 101

Spring has well and truly sprung and you know what that means… SPRING CLEANING time! Shake the cobwebs off the duster and pop the cleaning gloves on… it’s time to get busy. 
But, who really has the time to do a Spring clean each week? Imagine how easy cleaning would be if little bits were done each day. Well, I’ll let you in on a few tips to help cut back your Saturday cleaning session.

  1. Bathroom
Invest in a $2 squeegee and keep it hanging in the shower. After each shower, wipe down the screens/walls your new tool. You’ll be surprised at how much grim it swipes off.
And now for disinfectant wipes. These bad boys are about to become your best friend. Use one to quickly wipe down your toilet, then get a fresh one to clean your sink. You can also spot clean the floor using a wipe if you notice any marks. And for those who've got a stash of baby wipes in each nook and cranny, use them to wipe down surfaces - non-toxic and does the trick! Easy right?

  1. Kitchen
I don’t know about you, but I cannot keep the stove top spotless after a good bout of spag bol! My hot tip here – as soon as you’ve finished cooking dinner and the hot plates have cooled down – give the stove a quick wipe over with a damp cloth. Let me tell you, this 60 second exercise will save you a lot of scrubbing time.

  1. Bedrooms

    There’s nothing nicer (ok there is, but this is pretty good!) than pulling the sheets and doona back right before jumping into bed after a hard day’s work. A freshly made bed is a MUST. Making your bed as soon as you hop out of it is the first task you’ve completed for the day. What a way to start, huh.

  1. Everywhere else

    Keep a hand held vacuum handy and when you spot the odd crumb, zap it up! It saves you a lot of time when you need to do the entire floor space.

Every few days, tidy up and put away items; try and keep clutter to a minimum. Fluff up the cushions and throw rugs on the couch. It’s amazing what a little aesthetically-pleasing task such as this, can do!

After all, an organised home = an organised mind.
