The University of Southern Queensland has unveiled new incentives to encourage students to live on campus.
Pro Vice-Chancellor Prof Josh Pienaar announced on Monday that the first 300 new and returning residential students in 2021 will receive welcome packs valued at up to $1300 each.
“To help students prepare for next year they will be able to pick their favourite pack from three different options available,” Prof Pienaar said.
“There are two technology packs to choose from, with the options of either an iPad and case, or a 15.6-inch HP laptop.
“Alternatively, students can choose a Become Ready pack designed to cover many of the initial costs of moving on campus – this includes items such as a fridge, portable speaker, FitBit, linen pack and stationery voucher.”
A new accommodation scholarship valued at $2000 per year has also been announced to provide additional support.
The Residential Colleges Student Support Scholarship will mean every student staying on campus at the University’s Toowoomba campus next year will receive some form of financial support.
