About 12km from the city centre, the Flinders Bedford Park campus is close to beaches and Marion shopping centre. The campus is like a small village, with a post office, pharmacy and health service – so you don’t have to leave to find everything you need! Construction has also started on the new student hub (take a sneak peek). We asked current students what they love about the Flinders campus… see their responses below!
If you would like to visit the campus yourself, and find out where you could be studying in the future, book a tour with a current student!
“I think what I love most is how open and welcoming it feels, both socially and academically. Just sitting in the plaza opens your eyes up to the diversity of the student body, and gives you the feeling that there’s no doubt you fit in.”
Olivia Cirocco, Bachelor of Media Arts
“There’s a bar (with pool tables), food vans, large open areas with plenty of sun, the student association and there’s always people around. The plaza is the hub of activity and you will often stumble across things like live music.”
Tim Ruth, Bachelor of Business (Advanced Leadership and Marketing) & Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting)
“Upon visiting the campus, Flinders suited my ‘country’ background with the open spaces and plenty of vegetation. It offers a single campus that caters for a variety of courses and the opportunity to interact with many people.”
Genevieve Wright, Bachelor of Education (Primary R-7)/Bachelor of Arts
“What I love about Flinders is the friendly atmosphere that creates the space for growth, development, success, opportunities and friendships. I really love the many services that Flinders provides that extend the opportunities on offer.”
Tara Salter, Bachelor of Education (Middle and Secondary)/Bachelor of Arts
“The medical library has been one of my favourite places to hang out – it’s probably the most social medical area in the University, and it’s so much more than a library! I go there to catch up with my friends and fellow colleagues, and use it extensively for lunch breaks in the winter, as well as study groups and quiet individual study. The library is always bustling with people to talk to and help you out, and the atmosphere is always friendly and energetic!”
Lekha Gupta, Bachelor of Clinical Sciences/Doctor of Medicine
“Anchor Court is one of my favourite places on campus. It is a quiet courtyard with green grass and trees in the middle. You can rest out in the sun which is great when waiting for lectures or meeting up with friends.”
Sofia Ali, Bachelor of Science (Animal Behaviour)
“My favourite place on the campus is the Science and Innovation Learning Centre (SILC). I can sit comfortably and relax, get food as well as interact with my friends.”
Salva Kasole, Bachelor of Engineering (Biomedical)
