University of Adelaide Heritage Properties

The University of Adelaide's property portfolio includes over 30 heritage listed structures.  All of these have documented heritage value and are included on State and Local Heritage lists.  In addition there are a number of buildings with potential heritage value which are yet to be documented or formally listed.  These heritage places are spread across the five campuses of the University and represent purpose built educational buildings, industrial buildings, historic residences and farm buildings, and they serve varying functions within the University's activities.
