Bus services during exams

Bus services during exams

The easiest way to get to your exam is by bus. Sydney Buses provide additional services during UNSW exam time. If you're going to exams at Royal Randwick Racecourse and/or the UNSW Kensington Campus, here is information about bus services to get you there and home again for the Semester 2, 2017 exam period.

Please allow plenty of time for your journey as the trip can take longer due to Light Rail constructions works in the area.
