Rental Housing Conditions

This citizen science photo gallery provides a platform to document examples of Australian rental conditions to better understand the material conditions of rental properties and the extent and characteristics of building problems. 

We know very little about the conditions of Australian rental properties. The Rental Housing Gallery contains images submitted by anonymous individuals of the conditions of rental properties across Australia. These images provide researchers, policy makers, and the public with a better understanding of the conditions of rental properties, and the extent and characteristics of building problems.

We hope that the gallery will encourage debate and discussion, as well as give publicity to housing conditions in the rental sector.

The project is funded by the Australian Research Council and the University of Adelaide, in partnership with the University of South Australia, the University of Melbourne, Swinburne University of Technology, Curtin University and Western Sydney University and is led by Professor Emma Baker at the University of Adelaide.

Our new Citizen Science Gallery site is currently under development.
