Living off campus
With Flinders University’s convenient location and so many transport and accommodation options available, living off campus is easy. If you plan to live in off-campus rental accommodation, we recommend that you do not sign any agreement before you come to Australia and have seen the property for yourself.
The majority of students live in suburbs along the major transport corridors of South Road, Fiveash Drive, Goodwood Road or Sturt Road. City accommodation is often on a direct bus route to the Bedford Park campus.
Suburbs close to Flinders University, Bedford Park campus and accessible by public transport are Bedford Park, Clovelly Park, Edwardstown, Melrose Park, St Marys, Mitchell Park, Flagstaff Hill, Panorama, Pasadena and Sturt.
