Uni's 'Live to Succeed' accommodation opens
Wednesday, 15 June 2005
Labelled a "home away from home", and adopting a "Live to Succeed" theme, the University of Adelaide Village will next month open its doors to Australian and international students.
Managed by the University of Adelaide, The Village will provide accommodation for over 400 students in modern, fully furnished townhouses.
Located at 210 Grote Street, The Village is the first of its kind in Adelaide, providing modern facilities in a supportive community environment conducive to academic success. The townhouses are fully furnished with a kitchen, lounge and dining area plus all utilities. They also include:
- 24-hour on-site management;
- direct Internet connection from rooms to the University's data network via high speed broadband;
- telephones in each room;
- tutorial room, student lounge and study centre;
- a short walk to Chinatown and the Central Market.
"The Village is a unique student accommodation option for Adelaide that combines independent living with significant support for residents, by way of academic tutoring, mentoring programs and organised social activities," says Mr Geoffrey Denison, the University's Accommodation Manager.
"There are many accommodation options available to students in the private market, but The Village will provide true student service and assist students to adapt to life away from home."
Accommodation in the first stage will consist of 154 places in four and five bedroom townhouses. The final stage will be completed in January 2006, with more townhouses and a six-storey apartment building.
