‭Stunning campuses

Flinders has three campus locations in Adelaide. Flinders International Study Centre is conveniently located in two campus locations, Bedford Park and Victoria Square.

  • Bedford Park

    Flinders University's main campus is located in the foothills of Adelaide, with panoramic views of the central business district to the north and a long, stretching coastline to the west. It is well serviced by public transport, so you can easily explore Adelaide.

    Bedford Park campus is green and spacious, making it the perfect place to study and relax. You may even spot the occasional koala lounging in a tree. The centrepiece of the campus is a lake, the perfect spot to enjoy lunch or to meet up with friends.

  • Victoria Square

    Flinders University's city campus is located in the heart of Adelaide's business district. The campus has great public transport links and it is close to South Australia's government and corporate headquarters. Adelaide’s Central Market and ‘eat streets’ are also just a few minutes walk away.

  • Tonsley

    Science and Engineering students get to study at Flinders' Tonsley campus, a cutting-edge $120 million facility that opened in January 2015. It is a place where start-up businesses and innovative entrepreneurs come together to create products for the 21st century, and beyond.

    More than 150 staff and 2,000 students work and study at the facility which includes two state-of-the art lecture theatres and 28 specialised laboratories. Tonsley is also home to Flinders University's New Venture Institute, which has created almost 200 start-ups since it launched in 2013.
