Why live at ALC?

ALC is situated in picturesque North Adelaide, a short walk across parklands to the city university campuses and easily accessible to other tertiary educational facilities.

We provide spacious, single occupancy rooms for 78 students, in a close-knit community based around Christian values, where you're able to get to know like-minded individuals and make lifelong friends. Located on the campus of Australian Lutheran College, affiliated with the Lutheran Church of Australia, ALC residential accepts individuals from all faiths.

Each private study bedroom is fully furnished and cleaned weekly. Wireless internet is included and laundry facilities are provided on campus. Facilities nearby include the North Adelaide shopping and cafe precinct, Adelaide Oval, the River Torrens and all forms of public transport.

We are committed to providing a home away from home where our residents can feel relaxed, safe and happy.

When to apply

Students looking for accommodation may apply for residency at any time during the year.

If you are about to commence tertiary studies we encourage you to put in your application even before you are accepted into University/TAFE to make sure that you are on our register and we can send you the appropriate documentation. If you miss out on a University/TAFE position just let us know and we will remove you from our register.


Our fees are published on the website by October for the upcoming year.

All fees can be paid via the ALC payments website. See fees for more information.
