Tika Tirka (Stay & Learn): Indigenous student accommodation

Tika Tirka means to stay and learn in Kaurna language, and that’s exactly what Indigenous students from regional communities are able to do when they move into the student accommodation.

Based in Adelaide’s CBD, Tika Tirka provides students aged 18 to 26 with an affordable, safe and culturally appropriate home away from home while they study in Adelaide.

We speak with State Manager for Aboriginal Housing Housing, Wayne Gibbings, about the services provided; Ngarrindjeri and Narrunga university student, Michael Cullen, talks about his experience living at the facility; and Housing Officer, Ronald Rankine, promotes Indigenous students having a space where they are the majority.
