Campus Setting

Waite Campus is located on 174 hectares in the Adelaide foothills with a view to the sea and the city, just fifteen minutes away from North Terrace by car or bus.

Waite Campus includes the internationally renowned Waite Research Institute, Waite Arboretum, Urrbrae House Historic Precinct and Waite Conservation Reserve.

The Waite is home to a number of Schools within the Faculty of Sciences, and to a number of research partners in the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Primary Industries and Resources South Australia (PIRSA), the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI), and the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI). The University of Adelaide staff and students work with people from these organisations, giving them a unique opportunity to gain practical and theoretical knowledge through participation in ongoing national and international research projects.

Waite Campus is a centre for excellence in molecular plant breeding, horticulture, viticulture, oenology, integrated pest management, weed management and soil and water management. The Faculty is a major collaborator in Cooperative Research Centres for Viticulture, Molecular Plant Breeding, Weed Management and Salinity. Two Major National Research Facilities (MNRFs) are represented on site in Provisor - the MNRF for Wine, and the Agriculture Section of the Australian Genome Research Facility Ltd. Combined with the world-class education reputation of the University of Adelaide and location at the Waite, the Wine Innovation Cluster is set to achieve its target - recognition as the world's premier research, development, extension and education facility servicing the wine industry.

In 2009 Waite Campus had 431 students enrolled.
