Flinders in the Riverland
The Riverland is home to Flinders University's undergraduate nursing degree (rural) and the first Parallel Rural Community Curriculum program run by Flinders University Rural and Remote Health SA, based at our Renmark campus, with further facilities housed in our Simulation Lab at the Riverland General Hospital.
A student common room provides access to bathroom, lockers and kitchen facilities including a microwave and fridge, open seven days a week from 7am to 10pm (students require access code and alarm details for access after hours. Please see security information for details about how to request access).

Students based at Renmark (permanently or temporarily whilst on placement) can also access the Library’s SendIt Service for free delivery and return of Library books and scans of articles or chapters.
