At St Mary’s, share your stylish new unit with two or three housemates, and revel in the convenience of having your home pre-furnished. In the mornings, wake up in your air-conditioned bedroom, then jump in the shower before grabbing a snack from your in-room bar fridge. Your nearest bus stop is just one minute’s walk away, and from there, it’s a 17-minute commute to classes at Flinders University. On weekends, use the bus stop as your ticket to central Adelaide.
Spend a Saturday at Adelaide Zoo, meeting endangered animals like the Sumatran tiger and the giant panda; or get your culture fix at Adelaide Festival Centre, home to plays, musicals and concerts. When you get back, choose something comfortable from the wardrobe, then throw your dirty clothes in the unit’s free laundry. Use the high-speed broadband to check emails at your study desk - knowing that with internet and all other utilities included, you don’t have to limit your time online.
Later, kick back in front of your in-room TV, or use your unlimited local phone calls to get in touch with your friends. Invite them over for dinner, then walk six minutes up the road to Bakulan Indonesian Grocery. Use exotic ingredients like fresh tempe and fermented cassava to cook something wonderful in the apartment kitchen. There’s a weekly cleaning service included in your rent, so that you don’t have to spend too much time cleaning up. After dinner, catch a ride with friends to nightlife hotspot King William Road.
