Campus information

The Torrens Building is one of the State's most notable surviving purpose-built Government office buildings. Completed in 1881, it was the largest public building of its period and one of the largest buildings in the city. It is the first building erected on the site and was used continuously for Government Offices for over a century. The building is of architectural significance as the best remaining example of Renaissance Palladian style architecture in Adelaide. The Torrens Building is now home to the International University Precinct in Adelaide.

The precinct is situated in the heritage-listed Torrens Building at Victoria Square in the heart of Adelaide’s central business district.

Adelaide is a quick and easy place to get around, with a bus, train and tram public transport system connecting all parts of the city and suburbs.
