About Scape South Bank
Brisbane is the largest metropolitan area and third-largest state capital in Australia. It is a cosmopolitan city and a significant centre for research and innovation in the Asia-Pacific region. It is an excellent choice for international students.
Scape South Bank is a student housing in Brisbane that offers different studios and shared apartments. All units feature a double bed, a study desk with a chair, a bathroom, a kitchenette, an LCD TV, a dining area, and air conditioning.
The property features various amenities and services, including Wi-Fi, 24/7 security, all-bills inclusive, and an events programme. Other services include a group study room, a social lounge, an outdoor terrace, a cinema room, an on-site gym, and on-site laundry.
The building is located on Merivale Street, just a short walk from the centre of the city. It is surrounded by a variety of exciting and lively locations, including eatery spots, entertainment venues, and other places of interest. If you’re craving a delicious pizza dish, Persone Italian Restaurant is just a few minutes away from the residence, and it serves classic Italian fare, including pasta and pizza, in a classy venue. Burrito Bar South Bank is another nearby eatery offering tasty Mexican food in a vibrant atmosphere. If you’d like to have some Thai food, Phat Boy eatery is just a short drive from the property, and it makes the best Thai specialities in the neighbourhood!
When you need to do some grocery shopping, Woolworths Metro Southpoint supermarket is a minute away, and it has everything you’d need at discounted prices. After a bustling day on campus, we suggest you go for a casual evening stroll at Kurilpa Point Park, where you can blow off some steam and enjoy the greenery and the scenery. Over the weekend, you may enjoy a night out with your pals and watch the latest box-office movies at the Cineplex South Bank movie theatre. You may also choose to go on a shopping spree at Queen Street Mall, where you can find lots of retail shops and fashion boutiques. Another thing you can do during the weekend is enjoy the panoramic city views from up on the Wheel of Brisbane.

1. A student will pay a week's holding deposit to confirm their booking. This is not an extra fee but this goes into their first week's rent payment.
2. The bond deposit is four weeks' rent amount (eg. if rent is $400 per week then it will be $400 x 4) and this is payable to us 10 days prior to arrival. This amount is then lodged on behalf to the relevant state's bond authority and the bond authority will email the student directly to confirm that Scape Group has lodged the bond on behalf of the student.
3. After the confirmation of their booking, the student will have access to their portal/ student account. This will allow them to view everything in regards to their tenancy and also their contract is accessible for signing 8 weeks prior to their contract start date.
4. In regards to the rent payment frequency, they will only have two choices - fortnight rent payment or all upfront payment (prior to tenancy start). Should they choose the former option, they will have to fill in paperwork for a direct debit option.
International students can pay fortnightly or all up front when they arrive. A 1-week rent is required in advance to secure your room. Please note that this holding deposit is allocated to the first week’s rent amount, and is not an application fee or processing fee at all.
We understand that students have lots of important things to focus on, so especially during these uncertain times, Atira are here to help make life less stressful. We have put together a deferral and cancellation policy for new bookings commencing in Semester 1, 2022 that provides flexibility if you are currently outside of Australia and impacted by COVID-19.
If you have a booking and are not able to arrive in Australia because of COVID-19, you can defer your contract to the following semester. The same terms of the original booking will carry forward to the new semester booking, including the type of room you booked and even the same weekly rent.
If you need to cancel your booking with us for one of the reasons detailed below, all you need to do is email us no less than 14 days before your contract start date and we will cancel your booking and provide a full refund of any fees paid. We will provide flexibility to defer or cancel if you are impacted by any of the below reasons, all you need to do is provide supporting documentation:
• Visa Denied
If your visa application is rejected or the visa centre remains closed in your respective country.
• Flight Cancellation/Travel Ban
If your scheduled flight is cancelled and an alternate flight is not available, or if there is a travel ban preventing travel from your country of origin or in Australia preventing you from arrival.
