UPDATE 1 - Private Rental Accommodation - May 2013
The University of Adelaide Accommodation Service understands that affordable ( share ) accommodation can be found in the private rental market and offers the rental database for the exclusive use of University of Adelaide students.
The rental database can be access from the Accommodation Service, Level 4, Union House, North Terrace campus by any enrolled student of the University of Adelaide with a User Name and Password.
Students looking to find share or rental accommodation when they arrive in Adelaide are encouraged to visit the Accommodation Service ( Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm ) as soon as they can after arriving so our team of friendly staff can orientate them with all their options, facilitate access to the rental database and support students through the process of identifying and securing quality share or rental accommodation.
Students are DISCOURAGED from sending money from offshore to secure share or rental accommodation without having had the opportunity to inspect the accommodation first. The Accommodation Service has received a number of reports recently pertaining to non compliant or fraudulent activities from providers who have listed accommodation options on the following websites:
For more information on the types of scams found on these website, please refer to the following media report - http://aca.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=8560697
The Accommodation Service acknowledges that the majority of listings available on these sites are reputable but our advice is that students inspect the accommodation on arrival before sending money to secure it.
