Some complainants who have mobility disabilities lodged a complaint against Adelaide University in regard to Elder Hall. This is a major artistic venue and is used during the Adelaide Festival.

Following this, the University advised that it had allocated funds to modify access to the Hall and had consulted with the complainants about the building proposal. The University also guaranteed that the Hall would not be used for the 1998 Festival if it were not accessible by then. Work has since been completed. The then HREOC now AHRC has lauded this outcome and has commended all parties.
