Transition to uni life
When you arrive (and even before) you’ll find that there are plenty of support staff and student leaders happy to help you move into your accommodation, settle in, and get involved in Orientation Week (O’Week) activities. During this time we’ll help you build a strong support network that will help you as your adjust to your new environment, find your classes, participate in a wide range of events and, most importantly, make new friends from all over the world.
Our support team will assist you to locate support from either within Flinders Living or from the wide range of student service providers across campus.
Mentoring and support
Let’s face it, sometimes being at uni can be tough. Within our residential communities there are student leaders called residential tutors (Hall) or residential coordinators (Village) who are available to offer you support whether it be a personal matter of concern, an issues that may have arisen in one of your topics, pre-exam stress,
There is always a staff member available (including after hours and weekends) if you are in need of urgent medical assistance, wish to report a critical maintenance issue in your room or unit, or are concerned for your welfare or that of a fellow resident.
Our Deputy Principal, an accredited mental health social worker, coordinates our student support programs.
Fun, games and socialising
A big part of uni life is making friends and enjoying your time at Flinders. Hall residents become members of the Flinders University Hall Residents’ Club, which is a member of the South Australian Association of University College Clubs (SAAUCC). SAAUCC brings together residents of Aquinas, Lincoln, St. Ann’s and St. Mark’s Colleges (all located in North Adelaide) with Flinders University Hall for a busy sporting, social and cultural program of events and activities.
The social life of the Village is focussed in the Community Centre, a large common space comprising well-equipped recreation area, kitchenette and study and music rooms. There are also two BBQ areas for outdoor cooking and relaxation.
As a Flinders Living resident you will be entitled to a free membership of Flinders Sports and Fitness allowing you access to the weights and cardio rooms, the ladies only gym and group fitness classes.
