Meet a student from Barker St.

Adrian Pietkiewicz


I’m originally from Canberra and after completing my undergraduate degree, I decided to live and study at UNSW. I chose Barker Apartments for two reasons, it’s located on campus and it’s good value for money.

My schedule is a little hectic and often means I need to stay in the laboratory till very late, so having the freedom to cook my own meals in my own kitchen is quite handy. I’ve got plenty of space in my bedroom and some pretty fantastic housemates.

What are you studying?

Chemistry (PhD).

What 3 words describe Barker Street?

I hope to become a…

A scientist in the pharmaceutical industry.
