Our tour guide will take you on a journey of exploration, interweaving the history of the University with the development of the Quadrangle and the surrounding buildings.

Wonder at the features that make our campus unique, including the Kangaroo gargoyle, the Great Hall, MacLaurin Hall and Sydney University Museums.

The old and the new

Outside of the Quadrangle, there is also the opportunity to explore an additional two buildings with equally fascinating architecture and history – the Anderson Stuart Building (the original site of the Medical School) and the Sydney Law School.

Individually, they represent important architectural features of the University and collectively, they illustrate the ways in which the University has responded to growth and changing student needs over time.
