Law Foyer

Located on level 2 of the New Law Building, The Foyer is a spacious modern venue, with views of Sydney CBD over Victoria Park, from within the venue itself and from the accompanying amphitheatre space.

The Foyer is ideal for Seminars, Lecture series and panel discussions. It is also suitable for cocktail functions and parties.

The ‘standard’ setup for the Law Foyer is 60 chairs in a lecture theatre format. Red lounges are placed along the side of the room and cannot be removed. The facilities team can provide more chairs if needed – up to 130. If your event will not require any chairs, then please inform the facilities team when booking the venue, as this may require extra setup time.



The Foyer is equipped with a kitchen immediately adjacent to the function room discretely concealed behind slide doors. The kitchen includes a microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, 2X sinks with chilled and boiling water supply. There is also limited storage space available if needed.

If your event is catered, please note that the University of Sydney requires all caterers to hold a gold license. We do not have a preferred caterer.
