Parking, Security and Campus Bus service

Information regarding campus parking and transport options are given at: Driving and Parking and Security and Safety.

A free Campus Bus service passes the Physics building about every 15 minutes from 4:30pm and takes you to Redfern Station. See the Campus Bus service website for information and timetables.

It is not advisable to travel around the University on your own after hours or when it is dark. Travel with someone else if possible or if late at night you can request security to come and give you an escort to the nearest bus or train station. Security can be contacted on 9351 3487.

Trains can be caught from Redfern, Macdonaldtown or Newtown stations, each about fifteen minutes walk away (more trains stop at Redfern). Trains run at frequent intervals during the day. Again, see Transport NSW for timetables and other information.
