Sarah's UNIShare Story



Sarah, undergraduate intern from Germany, UNIShare Mawson Lakes resident January - May 2010


I arrived in Adelaide for my internship at SA Water in January 2010. I didnīt have any clue where to stay so I read every newspaper and looked up in the internet. I wanted to find a place as soon as possible in Adelaide, but at first I was a little bit disappointed, because I visited lots of houses which sounded nice but they weren`t…until I finally found Lionels number. I was very happy that Lionel wanted to help me immediately to find a place where I feel like at home!

My first impression about the house was perfect and looking back it was the best decision I could have made. Not only the nice house which has everything you need, especially the location was beautiful! The suburb is one of the newest in Adelaide, very clean and there are many possibilities to enjoy life, for example to go jogging, making BBQ in the park just opposite the house or relaxing at the lake (10 min. walk). It has also a perfect connection with public transport to get to the city, shopping center or uni/work.

Due to so many housemates from all over the world you get a great chance to learn about different cultures, you are never bored and at the end of your stay you have a lot of new lovely friends! And if we ever had any problems we always contacted Lionel who fixed the problem as soon as possible! I would highly recommend everyone to live in one of the UNIShare house. It makes your stay in another country easier when you donīt have to bother about furniture, internet and all the accessories and you are made to feel so welcome!
