In front of Torrens U is the Quadrant, a peaceful plaza where students can find sun and fresh air between classes. On three sides are apartments including student accommodation. At ground floor there are restaurants and cafes. In the center is a water feature inspired by Blackwattle Creek which once flowed through here, and near the university entrance is the First Australians sculpture which is a reminder of the generations of Aboriginal tribes people who camped in this place near the creek for thousands of years. The Quadrant is rich with history and sense of community.
