Become a permanent part of the new heart of UniSA

Pridham Hall

Inspire tens of thousands of SA's future leaders through your corporate gift

The University of South Australia is rapidly revitalising the West End of Adelaide and building a new heart for its City campus with the creation of Pridham Hall - a $50million flagship ceremonial and sporting centre for students and for the community.

Featuring a sporting complex, gym, heated swimming pool and facilities for graduations and corporate and cultural events - tens of thousands of students, staff, and community members will pass through the iconic facility each year.

Within the architecturally unique structure Pridham Hall companies are being offered a rare opportunity to permanently embed the company’s name along with three words of inspiration in for just $5,000.

Pridham Hall was named following a remarkable $5 million benefaction from The Pridham Foundation - which administers the philanthropic activities of one of South Australia’s most successful sons, Andrew Pridham and his family.

Originally from South Australia, and a UniSA graduate in property resource management, Andrew Pridham has forged a successful international career as an investment banker in Sydney, Singapore, London and New York. Andrew is also Chairman of the AFL Club The Sydney Swans (Director since 2002, Chairman since 2013).  

“I’ve always believed that it is important for people with the capacity to contribute to the broader Australian community to do so generously and encourage others to do the same.” Andrew Pridham

Embed your company name and three words in the DNA of Pridham Hall

Pridham Hall has been designed with three artistic spaces to permanently display the names of supporters for future generations to see. Because of demand from graduates, staff and supporters, the edge of the swimming pool is now sold out.

You can still choose to embed your company's name and three words onto the blades of the Chandelier or have them carved on the Inverted Pyramid, both of which will be part of the impressive foyer of Pridham Hall and will be visible by all users of the building.

By donating $5,000, your company name and three words will be permanently etched into Pridham Hall and your support will also help fund future student facilities.

  • You will be allocated 60 character spaces for your company name and three words, which can be recorded in other language characters, for example Mandarin, Hindi etc.
  • We do reserve the right to not accept words that are deemed inappropriate.
  • Your company's words should serve to inspire future students and are not intended to be sales slogans.
  • We are happy to provide feedback and guidance on wording – please contact us on 08 8302 2752 or 08 8302 7375

The Chandelier

The Jam Factory and design team have chosen glass-like resin blades to be suspended from the foyer ceiling to form a beautiful chandelier of words. The Chandelier will be a stunning feature of the main foyer and a striking spectacle when illuminated at night.

The Inverted Pyramid

Here your name and three words will be carved in wood as part of the impressive Inverted Pyramid in the main foyer. The Inverted Pyramid evokes a sense of the ancient; the etched names reminiscent of iconic buildings of the past.
