SCA Campus

How to get to SCA

Sydney College of the Arts (SCA) is located in the historic Callan Park precinct in the suburb of Lilyfield. SCA is on Kirkbride Way accessible from Balmain Road, being the principal commercial high street of Lilyfield-Rozelle. The vehicle entrance in to Callan Park is from Balmain Road (opposite Cecily Street).


Sydney College of the Arts, as part of the University of Sydney, operates as a Restricted Parking Area under the Road Traffic Act. Drivers must observe traffic and parking rules as they would on any public street. Vehicles must display authorisation to park in a Restricted Area and may only be parked within marked bays as appropriate to the authorisation and signage displayed.

Traffic and parking is managed under the Self Enforcing Infringement Notice Scheme (SEINS) with breach notices being issued by University Security Patrol Officers and fines being collected by the NSW Police Infringement Processing Bureau. SEINS is enforceable 24 hours per day and cars parked outside designated parking areas will be subject to parking infringement notices.

The designated parking areas are shown on the campus map.
