Multi-Access Suites

Multi-access suites have been established in all metropolitan libraries with a modified version available at 101 Currie Street and HB1-21 (SACRI Building). The multi access suites are only available to patrons during library opening hours.

The suites are available to all members of the University community and provide a dignified, private and appropriate space that supports the needs of parents, breastfeeding mothers, and people with disabilities, medical or mental health conditions.

Each campus multi-access suite provides:

  • A quiet place to breastfeed, bottle-feed, or express milk
  • A quiet place to attend to disability or medical or mental health conditions
  • A partitioned section for extra privacy
  • Comfortable seating
  • A baby change table in each section
  • A height adjustable hydraulic table in the main room
  • Hot and cold water
  • A microwave
  • Waste disposal

If you have any questions about the multi-access suites please contact the People, Talent and Culture Unit at EquityAndDiversity@unisa.edu.au or extension 21666.

Staff, students and visitors

UniSA staff automatically receive access to use all multi access suites on their Staff ID. If you are unable to gain access, please contact FM Assist on your campus.

UniSA students who wish to apply for once-off or occasional access to the Multi Access Suite should contact FM Assist on their campus.

Students with a disability, medical or mental health condition who require regular admission to the multi access suites should negotiate access as a part of their Access Plans. To organise an access plan you can make an appointment to see a Disability Adviser with the Learning and Teaching Unit on your campus.

Visitors to the University requiring once-off access should direct their request to Library staff.

Locations
