UniLodge Herston manage student accommodation within the heritage-listed Lady Lamington Nurses’ Home and the refurbished Spanish Mission style Lady Lamington North and South Towers located in the heart of the Herston Quarter Redevelopment.
The Brisbane General Hospital Precinct, which includes the Lady Lamington Nurses’ Home, was added to the Queensland Heritage Register in 2012 and represents a distinct piece of Brisbane’s historical past. The elevated position of Lady Lamington’s, overlooking stunning uphill vistas, is a well-known landmark for local residents today. Furthermore, the elegant gardens of Lady Lamington, situated amongst the developed hospital precinct, offer a visual feast for all.
Now owned by Australian Unity and proudly managed by UniLodge Australia, this splendid heritage building was redeveloped by Hutchinson Builders as UniLodge Herston – unique purpose built student accommodation that respects the historical significance and charm of the building, and now caters to both domestic and international students across Brisbane.
