Learning space in the Jeffrey Smart building
There’s a new building in town ready to transform the UniSA community experience for students and alumni, while helping revive Adelaide’s west end.

The Jeffrey Smart Building is UniSA’s new $80 million student learning centre on Hindley Street and it has just opened its doors opposite the City West campus. Named in recognition of the great Australian artist and UniSA alumnus, the building houses a range of facilities and services which alumni can access.
A standout feature is the state-of-the-art new library, which has superseded the City West space.

The modern, airy facilities feature lounge booths, device charging points and comfortable study areas. Alumni network card holders can access the Library’s collection of over 700,000 monographs and print journals, plus an archive of over 350,000 electronic resources including ebooks, ejournals, ereadings, and databases.

Also coming soon to the Jeffrey Smart Building is a new shopfront service operated by UniSA’s Career Services team. Located on the ground floor near the main entrance, CareerShop will combine drop-in and online services, says coordinator Demi Kastanos.

“CareerShop will be a full interactive recruitment service for students and graduates, and we will also offer a number of specialised workshops around the job search process,” she says.

CareerShop is now taking registrations from potential employers, including alumni employers. Expressions of interest can be made by contacting Demi.

The building itself has been designed to embrace the streetscape; on the ground it includes a café linking Hindley Street to the campus, while eight storeys up are panoramic views of the city from a range of vantage points, with interior themes inspired by the natural South Australian landscape.

The building was opened by UniSA Students’ Association President Arun Thomas alongside UniSA Vice Chancellor Professor David Lloyd, who says it will advance the University’s identity.

“The building provides some core practical consideration but also inspiring and exciting features that make it a great place to learn,” Professor Lloyd said.

Guided tours of the Jeffrey Smart Building will commence in June, with details to be posted online – where you can also access more information about the building facilities.
