Short-term Accommodation

The John Flynn College appreciates the importance of making a lasting impression on our guests. We take the time to understand all of your accommodation requirements from the moment of arrival until your farewell.


Our clean, fully furnished, air-conditioned rooms are available for short term and longer staying guests, including visiting academics, new postgraduate students, and short-term visitors (such as sporting teams and corporate groups) to the James Cook University.

Rates and Dates


The College offers short-term residency during the mid year and end of year vacation periods. Applications should be made directly to the College and rates are negotiable according to your needs. Please see the James Cook University academic calendar for mid-year and end of year vacation dates.

College accommodation is on par with other accommodation options, with all rooms boasting views of the surrounding gardens, reflecting the stunning natural style of the vibrant North Queensland region. Accommodation ranges from full board to “bed and breakfast” arrangements with packages from one night to several months.


A wide variety of fully catered, high quality meals are also offered, with catering available for special requirements. A large air-conditioned lounge and entertainment room featuring TV, VCR, DVD, pool table and a piano is available to make your stay more comfortable.
