Sydney College of the Arts is located in historic sandstone buildings designed by James Barnet in the 1880’s. Surrounded by the parklands of Callan Park, the campus overlooks Sydney harbour at Iron Cove, Rozelle.

SCA is located close to the city and is easily accessible by Sydney’s extensive public transport system. Student and visitor parking is also available.

SCA is located in a popular and historic area of Sydney. Rozelle and the neighbouring areas of Balmain and Leichhardt are famous for their range of cafes, restaurants and pubs. Balmain and Rozelle are also well-known for the boutique shops and weekend markets.

The architecture varies from the sandstone waterside homes of the fishermen and boatbuilders who first populated the area, to miners and workers cottages, rows of terrace houses and contemporary architect-designed homes.
