The University of Adelaide understands that accommodation requirements can vary from one student to another.
The Accommodation Service is tasked with the responsibility of supporting students to find an accommodation option that best suits their particular needs and thereby serves to enhance the education experience.
Whether it’s a room in a private house shared by multiple tenants or a private bedroom with ensuite bathroom in a University-managed student accommodation facility, students should aim to find an environment which is free from distraction and provides access to suitable study space and resources (e.g. a reliable internet connection).
Students based at either North Terrace, including the Medical School, or Waite campus are encouraged to consider the value of being centrally located in Adelaide’s central business district.
Students are offered an airport pick up service through the Accommodation Service. This service is free to students who choose to secure a place in University-managed student accommodation in their first year.
In addition to enjoying the vibrant cosmopolitan lifestyle Adelaide’s CBD offers there are significant savings, in both money and time, to be derived from access to the city’s free tram and bus network.
Central city living also offers easy access to the shopping and recreational precincts of Australia’s fifth largest city, such as Rundle Mall and Rundle Street, Gouger Street Café and Restaurant precinct, the Leigh Street bar district and Adelaide’s iconic Central Market and Chinatown.
Maintaining an active and balanced lifestyle is important to making the most of University life.
