Flinders University has lit-up the city of Adelaide, with the installation of the sky sign atop our brand new vertical campus in Festival Plaza, officially marking the opening of enrolments for 2024.
Located in the heart of Adelaide’s cultural precinct, Flinders’ new city campus connects students and staff to the surrounding arts, business, sports, health, law and government institutions.
Flinders University Vice-Chancellor Professor Colin Stirling said with over 60 undergraduate, postgraduate and honours programs available to study at Flinders’ city campus, it’s little wonder that the interest from future students has been intense.
“Our new city campus will enable more students to access the amazing experience and career-enhancing opportunities that a Flinders education provides, and we are excited that we will be opening the doors here in semester one next year,” Professor Stirling said.
“Flinders has an enviable reputation for innovation, underpinned by our unwavering commitment to the student experience, and our new city campus will deliver on this commitment in spades.”
Professor Stirling said South Australia’s most modern university campus has been designed with the student experience front and centre.
“From vibrant social learning spaces to quiet contemplation zones, there’s a spot for all learning styles,” Professor Stirling said.
The new city campus is right next door to the Adelaide Railway Station, providing a seamless connection to Flinders’ other campuses at Tonsley and Bedford Park, along the recently extended Flinders train line.
In addition to Flinders’ city campus, the University will open its new $280m Health and Medical Research Building at Bedford Park next year, followed by an $18m industrial-scale advanced manufacturing accelerator, Factory of the Future, at its Tonsley campus.
The city campus extends Flinders’ substantial physical footprint across South Australia and the Northern Territory, with teaching locations at Bedford Park, Tonsley, Barossa, Berri, Mount Gambier, Murray Bridge, Renmark, Victor Harbor, Alice Springs, Darwin, Katherine, Nhulunbuy and Tennant Creek.
