Student Accommodation Pooraka

Welcome to UNIShare Pooraka

Our original share house, UNIShare Pooraka, is in the quiet and friendly Montague Farm estate. The house is within walking distance of the Mawson Lakes campus of the University of South Australia (UniSA), and is close to bus routes serving the city of Adelaide.

North Terrace campuses of UniSA and the University of Adelaide are only 30 minutes away by bus. The house is also conveniently located for Flight Training Adelaide (FTA) at Parafield Airport, and for the various TAFE campuses in Adelaide and northern areas.

If you need to get to the Magill campus, catch a bus on nearby Montague Road (change at the Paradise Interchange).

UNIShare Pooraka is also conveniently located for the Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG) at Edinburgh, providing ideal accommodation for participants in DSTG’s Summer Vacation Scholarship (SVS) program.

Local shops are nearby in the Montague Farm precinct, and buses along Montague Road provide connections to the Ingle Farm Shopping Centre and Tea Tree Plaza (the largest mall in Adelaide’s northeast).

Rents start at $140 per week and include all utilities, internet, cleaning and gardening services.

In close proximity to a campus where science, engineering and IT courses predominate, UNIShare promotes gender equality by encouraging applications from female students!

All You Need to Know

Besides the general information we offer elsewhere on the website—What’s Included?, Getting to Your Campus, House Rules, Checklist for New Arrivals and the like—you can toggle the orange buttons below for all information specific to our share house in Pooraka.

  • UNIShare Pooraka is a former showhome, built in 1992, with both house and garden beautifully maintained. The layout offers six bedrooms, two living areas, and two bathrooms.

    The kitchen overlooks the main living areas. The kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, a fitted gas oven and hob, plus a microwave oven.

    The house features ducted evaporative cooling and ducted gas heating.

    A washing machine is provided in the laundry, which has sliding doors to outside for easy access to the clothes line which is attached to the rear of the house.

    The garage has a tiled floor and airconditioning, features attributable to its previous use as a showhome

    There is space for two cars in the garage, and UNIShare limits the number of vehicles kept on the premises to two, to avoid imposing on our neighbours. Students without their own car are therefore encouraged to apply. Because we are so conveniently located for campus, public transport and shopping facilities, you won’t need a car.

    (A nominal rent will apply for the use of a garage parking space. There is no charge for parking bicycles on the premises!)

    UniShare living offers levels of comfort and convenience rarely found in shared rental accommodation for students. We strive to create a welcoming home from home for our residents, and we expect our residents in turn to treat the home with the same respect as they would their own.
