Student life at Sydney Nursing School

Student lifestyle at Sydney Nursing School

Here at Mallett Street Campus we have a vibrant and supportive community. You'll find we're just a short walk from Camperdown Campus, with plenty of transport close by and a choice of cafes and restaurants. We're right opposite Camperdown Park – a great place to have lunch or simply get some fresh air or exercise.

Student welcome party

The foyer on the ground floor of Building C is a wonderful space for functions. It's where we hold the student/staff welcome party, postgraduate pre-registration information evenings, and several other functions throughout the year.

BMRI lawn

We're right next to the Brain and Mind Research Institute (BMRI) and between our two buildings is another outdoor space with tables and shady places to sit under the trees.

Mallett Street Cafe

Also on ground level is the Mallett Street Cafe. Marianne is there to welcome you, and if you leave a tip it goes towards a great cause each year.

WiFi connections at Mallett Street

Wherever you wander around campus you'll find that WiFi connection is excellent.

Student courtyard

There's a private courtyard on level 2, just near the student computer rooms.


One of the best ways to connect with other students socially is to become a member of Sydney University Nursing Society (SUNS).

Student common room

On level 4 of Building, students have the benefit of the student common room and a meditation room.

Student Lockers

Lockers are available for students to hire during operating hours.


If you are from a non-English speaking background, you might like to become a part of the CALD program, which meets four or five times a semester and offers help with writing, exam preparation and celebrates cultural and linguistic diversity within a nurturing and supportive environment.

SUNS masquerade ball

SUNS organises several fundraising and social events during the year, and shake off exams with a spectacular night.

There are lots of social activities throughout the year, like the volunteer packing days organised by our alumni, the Health Care Team Challenge, the Lunchtime Legends seminar series, and lots more. Keep an eye out to see what's on at Sydney Nursing School.

As well as enjoying a great llifestyle at Mallett Street Campus, you can also be part of many social events on Camperdown Campus. Check out more about Student Life at Sydney.
