Highgate Lodge is a 138 beds hostel. Most are in single occupancy rooms. There are a few twin share rooms. Common share bathrooms are located in the passages and are segregated Male/Female.

Free high speed wireless internet will be installed and incoming students can be connected in a few seconds. Students bringing their computers have to ensure they have built in wireless cards and, if not, to purchase a good quality plug in card. You can purchase the cards in Adelaide, but they are probably cheaper overseas. A quality plug in card costs between $50 and $100 in Adelaide.

Electricity, water, gas and cleaning of common areas are included in the rent as are the uses of the air conditioner and fridge. Students will clean their own rooms and we provide vacuum cleaners, brooms, etc.
