Option 1: We recommend you enrol online prior to arriving in Australia

  1. For information about enrolling in your degree, please visit the University’s New Students website. Please make sure you check your degree details as soon as possible and, if you have arrived in Adelaide, attend any essential international orientation activities so you don’t miss important information.

On Arrival Reception

A warm welcome from us to you

Arriving in a new country for the first time can be stressful, especially if you are alone. We want your first experience of our city to be a great one. That’s why the University provides a complimentary on arrival reception service when you arrive in Adelaide to study at the University for the first time.

How it works

  1. You must first make your own arrangements for your temporary or long term accommodation in Adelaide.
  2. Once you know your arrival and accommodation details, you can book your on arrival reception. Your travel companions are also eligible for this service.

IMPORTANT: To guarantee the success of your booking, please make it at least 72 hours before you arrive in Adelaide.


We provide students with information and advice on finding suitable housing, and access to a wide range of options to suit different needs and budgets. The University does not own or operate accommodation facilities except at its Whyalla campus. The student apartments, student hostels and residential colleges found on our website have been inspected by University staff. They are considered appropriate for student use and can be booked before arrival in Adelaide.

IMPORTANT: The links on the University website are legitimate, please beware of false rental advertisements commonly found on external share accommodation websites.

Your accommodation in Adelaide will be a significant financial investment and can affect your success as a student. Here are some tips to consider:

  • Make a realistic list of your accommodation needs, including your budget
  • Plan ahead – allow plenty of time to research the options and advice on the University website
  • Know your rights and obligations as a renter in South Australia. Tenancy laws apply to international students too
  • Understand the details of the lease / contract before agreeing to it. If unsure, get independent advice
  • Attend the Accommodation information session during Orientation at UniSA
  • Beware of internet rental scams on external share-accommodation websites
  • Contact University Accommodation Services for free advice and help
  • Only rent accommodation with a written lease / contract
  • Ensure you receive a receipt for any money you pay (eg. rent or security bond)
  • Seriously discuss “house rules” (household chores, bills, etc.) with housemates before sharing accommodation

IMPORTANT: Availability of accommodation can vary. We strongly advise you to book early - especially in the months of February and March.


Orientation will help you transition into life and studying at the University. It is an essential introduction to your degree, lecturers, classmates and home campus. We strongly urge you to attend.

During orientation you will:

  • Find out what services are available to you as a student at the University
  • Meet other students
  • Meet University staff
  • Gain valuable information regarding your chosen degree
  • Be assisted in your search for long term accommodation (if not already organised)
  • Be provided with information about getting around Adelaide and the University campuses
  • Learn some strategies for successful study and living in Adelaide
  • Have your questions answered

You can get the most up-to-date orientation information here.


IMPORTANT: Some degrees have compulsory orientation sessions. Make sure your travel plans enable you to arrive in time for this.
