Lecture theatre access
Most lecture theatres and teaching spaces provide facilities such as wheelchair spaces, and many have wheelchair access points at the front and rear of the room. Hearing loops are available on campus in some theatres to assist students using hearing aids. The University has also introduced a lecture recording system in some of the larger lecture theatres on each campus to facilitate access to lecture material.
Anyone with specific access requirements should investigate access to the various rooms as soon as possible. Students who experience any access difficulties should contact a Disability Adviser on that campus as soon as possible. The Disability Service may assist by providing equipment such as ergonomic seating, desks and FM transmitters where required.

Multi access suites

- a quiet place to attend to disability or medical related needs
- a partitioned section for extra privacy
- comfortable seating
- a baby change table in each section
- a height adjustable hydraulic table in the main room
- hot and cold water
- a microwave

The University provides a number of designated accessible on-campus parking spaces for people with a disability who hold an Australian Disability Parking Permit. A UniSA permit, which is free, is also required to park in these spaces. Both the University Parking Permit and the Australian Disability Parking Permit must be clearly displayed at all times when parking on University grounds.
Temporary Access Parking Permits are available for staff and students with a temporary or short term disability which impacts on their mobility for a period no longer than 3 months.
The Department for Communities and Social Inclusion have devleloped an App which can be used to find Access Parking in Adelaide.
The University of South Australia is committed to ensuring access to online materials for people with disabilities and aims to meet the "Level AA" rating of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 which covers Priority 1 and Priority 2 guidelines.
If staff or students are having difficulty accessing any online materials produced by the University because of a disability, they are encouraged to contact email@example.com and provide the following information:
- contact details
- the location of the page
