Booking accommodation

If you are a UniSA student and have been allocated a placement through the Clinical Placement Unit (CPU), you will receive an automated email from the UniSA DRH Student Information System (SIS) asking you to make a formal accommodation request at sites where we have accommodation. (See list on the accommodation page)

You should action this request as soon as possible after receiving your automated email. If accommodation is available you will be sent an email indicating that a room has been allocated to you, with further details to follow closer to your placement start date. If you do not respond accommodation will not be allocated to you. If the accommodation is fully booked at the time of your placement you will be contacted.
