Housing Information

Housing is provided on all ISA programs in the Pacific region, at an additional cost. There are a range of housing options and costs vary according to accommodation selected and session.

The Housing Commitment fee for the Adelaide Summer Program is $500, and must be paid by the Final Forms and Payment due date.
Semester/Year Program: The housing at the University of Adelaide will be $5,200 without a meal plan + a $500 refundable deposit (subject to change.)

A Housing Commitment Fee of $1,000 must be paid by the Final Forms and Payment due date. This fee is nonrefundable after the payment due date and is applied to overall housing costs.

ISA Housing provides the opportunity for students to experience aspects of the Australian lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average visitor of Australia. All ISA Housing options are either within walking distance or conveniently located near public transit routes. Travel times to the various university buildings generally range between 20 minutes depending on housing and class locations.

Off-Campus, No Meal Plan
ISA students will live at Ubanest Residential Apartments. This accommodations is a comfortable walk or a quick, free bus ride from campus buildings and are located close to Adelaide's popular Gouger Street and Central Markets.

Students living in the student residence will either have a single or shared room and will share bathroom and kitchen facilities with 5-8 other students. Residence halls will provide bed linens and will be equip with air conditioning, heating, and internet access via a DSL or wireless connection. Ethernet cables are NOT included, but are available for purchase from the residence hall reception desk upon arrival. Internet access is also NOT unlimited; rather students receive a University quota that is good for use both on campus and within the residence. Additional facilities including music, study and game rooms, and a computer room equip with printing services. Coin laundry facilities are available within or nearby the dorms and meals are not included.
*This option is not available during the summer term.

A $500 refundable security deposit will be charged to students living in ISA arranged housing. ISA may retain some, or all, of this deposit in the case of damage to property, or if utility usage exceeds the allotted monthly amount.

Independent Housing
Students may opt to secure housing independently. Students who select this option will be responsible for their own housing during the program and will forgo any ISA assistance for housing matters.

The experience of living in another culture will be both educational and rewarding so long as you stay open-minded and reasonable at all times. There are differences in culture and lifestyle between life in Australia and the U.S. Remember: the key to a positive experience is flexibility.
