AHURI is pleased to welcome the University of South Australia, the largest university in the state, to the AHURI research network. The network, which comprises universities from around Australia, is committed to the advancement of knowledge on key housing, homelessness and urban policy issues.

The new AHURI Research Centre is a joint initiative of two Divisions within the University: the Division of Education, Arts and Social Sciences and the UniSA Business School, and will feature the work of researchers from a range of disciplinary backgrounds including architecture, econometrics, geography, sociology, finance, social work, marketing, transport modelling, health economics, property/valuation and history. In addition, the Centre will draw upon the expertise and capacities of a number of nationally-significant research centres, including the Institute for Choice, the Ehrenberg-Bass Institute and the Australian Centre for Child Protection.

The University of South Australia is delighted to be joining the AHURI network... We look forward to the opportunity to work with colleagues from other member research centres and to contribute to policy development research on housing and related topics.

'The skills in the University of South Australia AHURI Research Centre are a great fit with those in our other network partner universities,' says Dr Ian Winter, Executive Director of AHURI. 'The strength of the network leads to the significant research and policy development work that government and the community have come to rely on.'

'The University of South Australia is delighted to be joining the AHURI network,’ says Associate Professor Christine Garnaut from the University of South Australia. ‘We look forward to the opportunity to work with colleagues from other member research centres and to contribute to policy development research on housing and related topics.'
