Accessible Parking and Transport

The University provides a number of designated accessible on-campus parking spaces for people with a disability who hold an Australian Disability Parking Permit. A UniSA permit, which is free, is also required to park in these spaces. Both the University Parking Permit and the Australian Disability Parking Permit must be clearly displayed at all times when parking on University grounds.

In order to obtain a University permit, complete the Application for Parking Permit and produce proof of your Australian Disability Parking Permit to the Security office on your home campus.

Temporary Access Parking Permits are available for staff and students with a temporary or short term disability which impacts on their mobility for a period no longer than 3 months.

For more information please refer to Access Parking and the UniSA Parking Guidelines.

Lecture Theatre Access

Most lecture theatres and teaching spaces provide facilities such as wheelchair spaces, and many have wheelchair access points at the front and rear of the room. Hearing loops are available on campus in some theatres to assist students using hearing aids. The University has also introduced a lecture recording system in some of the larger lecture theatres on each campus to facilitate access to lecture material online.

Anyone with specific access requirements should investigate access to the various rooms as soon as possible. Students who experience any access difficulties should contact the Access & Inclusion Advisor on that campus as soon as possible. Access & Inclusion Advisors are part of the Student Engagement Unit (SEU) and can assist by providing equipment such as ergonomic seating and adjustable desks where required.

To speak with an Access & Inclusion Advisor on your campus you can book an appointment online here or contact Campus Central on 1300 301 703 or simply drop in to your nearest Campus Central office. Appointments can be face to face, by phone or Skype and are available to internal, external and UniSA Online students.

Adaptive Technology Suites (ATS)

Adaptive Technology Suites (ATS) have been established in each of the metropolitan campus libraries for use by students with a disability or medical condition who require specialised software and/or equipment. This is part of UniSA’s commitment to ensuring all students have equitable access to resources and technology that supports their participation in University studies.

Please note that access to the ATS must be negotiated as part of an Access Plan. To organise an Access Plan you can make an appointment with an Access & Inclusion Advisor on your campus by booking an appointment online here or by contacting Campus Central on 1300 301 703 or simply drop in to your nearest Campus Central office.

Multi Access Suites (MAS)

Multi access suites have been established in all metropolitan libraries with a modified version available at 101 Currie Street. 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.

The multi access suites are only available during library opening hours and are restricted by swipe card access. 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 this as a part of their Access Plan.
