Thebarton Campus

Facilitating Links with Industry

Adelaide University Research Park - Thebarton Campus - is a vital link between the University of Adelaide and Australian business and industry.

The campus hosts a number of its applied research activities in the areas of mechanical engineering, physical sciences, electronic engineering, chemical engineering and occupational health. Commercial enterprises include businesses involved in materials engineering, biotechnology, environmental services, information technology, industrial design, laser/optics technology, health products, engineering services, radar systems and telecommunications.

In addition to establishing lasting partnerships with industry tenants, the campus provides a base for developing student projects and student skills into new business enterprises. Students are provided with furbished business premises, mentors and additional services to progress their commercialisation processes.

Students are also provided with practical training designed to equip budding entrepreneurs, interested to commercialise a (product/service/research), with the skills and support to take their idea forward and develop it into a commercially viable business.


Located on the banks of the Torrens River, the Thebarton Campus is only 4km from the city. It is one of the premier University owned technology/research parks in Australia. Within the Thebarton Business Incubator, graduates have the chance to develop their skills with some of the country's most innovative companies.

The location has now been sold, however current occupiers will still be operating as per usual. Occupiers will be able to relocate in a reasonable time frame to allow key functions of the University, and our staff, to continue. The campus is next to the entertainment centre and major transport routes including Port Road and South Road. Its close proximity to the airport further enhances its value for business and interstate visitors.
