Other Fees and Charges
Student Services and Amenities Fee
In October 2011, the Australian Parliament passed legislation to allow Universities and other higher education providers, to charge a compulsory Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) from 1 January 2012.
The program tuition fee, Student Contribution, and HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP loans do not cover the cost of 'incidental' study-related goods and services provided by Schools and Faculties.
All students should allow additional expenditure of at least $500 (AUD) per year for textbooks and basic study materials. Other costs may include specialist equipment (e.g. laboratory coats, microscopes, stethoscopes, musical instruments); optional supplementary reading and academic program materials; field trips; above-quota internet and printing costs; and research-related expenses such as thesis preparation, printing and binding. These costs will vary depending on the program in which you are enrolled.
Student Services charges
In addition to the Student Services and Amenities Fee there are charges for other services provided by the University, including provision of transcripts, replacement of graduation parchments and graduation gown hire.
Student Union fee
Students may elect to join the Adelaide University Union (AUU), the peak student representative body at the University. By joining, students will assist the AUU to develop and implement the philosophy that life at university is so much more than textbooks and lectures. In addition, students will be able to access a range of discounts covering gym membership, prices at commercial outlets on campus, textbooks and participation in a comprehensive range of activities of the Students' Association, Clubs Association and Sports Association.
University of Adelaide Library charges
Most library borrowing and access is free to University of Adelaide students. However, there may be charges for some specialist services, including inter-library requests.
Photocopying is also available, but must be paid for by students in advance.
Library fines and charges may apply when items are lost, stolen, damaged or misused, as outlined in the Library Rules.
Accommodation and living expenses
Accommodation and living expenses are in addition to tuition fees and the charges already discussed. For more information about these costs, please visit the Accommodation Service or Cost of Living in Adelaide pages.
