Accommodation at the QRRC

We welcome visitors to use the QRRC as their base for fieldwork or other activities in the area, for anything from a night or two to several months.

Located on a terrace just above the main site, the residence houses eight bedrooms, sleeping up to 18 people. There are three full bathrooms, a kitchen, study area, full laundry, and a sitting-room with a smart TV.


Bedding and towels are provided for your stay.

Every room is available for single or double accommodation. Double occupancy reduces the cost per person by 30%. As of 1 April 2017, the nightly rate for stays of 5 nights or fewer is $45 per person per night for single room occupancy, and $32 per person when a room is shared (before tax). We are obliged to add 5% GST to all rates, and room tax (8%) when the nightly rate is over $30.

To help stretch budgets for those based at the QRRC for longer periods of time, we have devised a 'sliding scale' of progressively lower rates with total length of stay. This reduces the cost for a single-occupancy room to ~$35 / night when staying longer than two weeks, and $25 / night for four weeks. 

To balance this, we request that those staying for longer periods assist with the basic tasks associated with meeting the day-to-day operational needs of the residence and centre. The guiding maxim is that this is very much a pitch-in-and-help-out kind of establishment!

A 25% discount on accommodation rates is offered to UNBC employees and students.
