If you’re choosing to study at our modern, vibrant Whyalla Campus, then the Student Residential Village is the best place to live. 

Students have their own bedroom and share a bathroom with one other student. A fully furnished kitchen and common living area means you can interact and study with your peers. 

Lecture and tutorial rooms are only a short walk away and the complex is monitored by on-going security. Off-street parking is available along with a lockable storage shed suitable for bicycles and other items. 

A BBQ area, volleyball court and basketball court complete the space and help to create a fun and balanced lifestyle. Applications are accepted for shorter and longer-term stays. Short term accommodation $50 per night and/or $100 per week. Long term accommodation $100 per week.

While in year 12, I wasn’t ready to move out of home or leave my community in Port Lincoln, but I also didn’t want to study externally. The Whyalla Campus provided the perfect alternative because I was able to study in person and go home on weekends. The on-site accommodation has given me the opportunity to experience elements of living independently and I have met the most incredible and welcoming people.
