Choosing the Right Location

Location is an important factor in deciding where to live. UNSW is located in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, south east of the central business district.

The university is accessible by Public Transport (the light rail) and takes approximately 15 minutes from Central Station.

The demand for housing is high in Sydney, especially in the weeks leading up to the start of term. We recommend allowing at least 3-4 weeks before orientation week to secure housing before term begins.
