Before You Travel....

Checklist for New Arrivals

UNIShare housemates have helped to compile the following checklist to help new arrvals settle in:

  • Sheets and towels. Bring a pillow cover and single bed sheets. UNIShare provides blankets and a pillow.
  • If you are arriving in winter, bring warm clothing. June-August are the coldest months in Adelaide.
  • Mains power adapter* for use in Australia. Try to buy one before you leave your home country so that you can charge your phone or laptop as soon as you arrive.
  • Consider adding roaming capability to your phone plan (although it is likely to be more economical to buy a sim card in Australia).
  • Taxis:
    • Adelaide Independent Taxis 13 22 11
    • Suburban Taxis 13 10 08
    • Yellow Cab Company 13 22 27.
  • Public transport website: Adelaide Metro
  • Nearest bus stop to UNIShare: Catch bus here.

*Note: Mains adapters are only for accommodating different pin configurations, NOT for converting voltages. They work only for 220-240V devices. If your device uses any other mains voltage, you will need to buy a suitable transformer here in Australia.
