A place to call home

Our University may be well known as Australia's first university, a place of historic sandstone buildings, expansive lawns and beautiful courtyards but this is just a small part of the total picture. In fact, we have some 10 campuses, not just in Sydney but right across New South Wales, providing a variety of work environments. Some faculties are based in Camperdown/Darlington but have facilities elsewhere. For example, Veterinary Science and Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources have farms and research units at the Camden Campus, while the Sydney Medical School has clinical schools in hospitals across the city. Other faculties have their own dedicated campuses, such as the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in the central city, Dentistry in Surry Hills, Sydney College of the Arts in Rozelle, and at Health Sciences at Lidcombe.

Our University is more than a workplace for our staff and a classroom for our students. An incredibly diverse cross-section of people call the University home. We are a community of like-minded academics and professionals from many different disciplines, each sharing a pride and appreciation of being able to work in a unique environment. We share a commitment to the life of the mind and its applications in the wider world.

We encourage our staff to make the most of the great amenities, family support and social get-togethers our campuses have to offer. From illuminating exhibitions in our museums and art gallery, to short vocational and educational courses; from musical and dramatic productions at our theatre centre, to chamber music and concerts at the Conservatorium of Music; we have a vast array of facilities and activities that appeal to everyone.

Beyond our cultural and educational resources we have a variety of sports and fitness centres including an Olympic-sized swimming pool, and various restuarants, cafes and bars. Your family and friends are also invited to participate in many of our 41 sports teams and clubs.

In short, our campuses offer outstanding lifestyle choices, a community in which you and your family can feel safe and welcomed, and a place to call home.
