Information About and Accommodation near University of Sydney

University of Sydney is Australia’s oldest university founded in 1850 and often referred to as simply USYD. It is ranked no. 1 in Australia and no. 4 globally for graduate employability. According to the QS University Rankings it comes in at 50th on a global university ranking, making it the 5th best tertiary institutions in Australia.

It is consistently ranked as one of the most beautiful universities in the world by both the Daily Telegraph UK and Huffington Post UK. Neo-gothic buildings are scattered across the sprawling campus located in Camperdown. The university is classical in design and is one of Australia’s six “sandstone universities”, an informal group consisting of the country’s oldest tertiary institutions.

Transport

There are a range of transport options for getting to and from USYD, although the most common form of transport is the train line to Redfern.

Bus, the main bus stops are located at the entrances to campus on City Rd and Parramatta Rd and are serviced by a range of buses heading to and from the CBD, Sydney North and West.

Train, Redfern Station is a less than 10-minute walk from campus and a steady stream of students provide a clear path to the university at all times of the day. 

Car, there is ample paid parking around USYD and some free parking found in surrounding suburbs if students wish to drive to campus.

Campus Life

Campus life within USYD is very enjoyable and the university places a strong emphasis upon maximising their student experience. Within the grounds are beautiful sprawling lawns and two student bars, Hermann’s Bar and Manning Bar, who have weekly live music and other events such as Student Stand Up Comedy. There are a wide range of clubs and student societies, from Medieval Live Action Role Playing (LARP) to Entrepreneurial Societies. There is focus on providing something for everyone and information about these clubs can be found here

Sport is another area USYD takes great pride in and you can find competitive teams for nearly any sport you can think of. However, don’t be discouraged if you don’t want to take your sport too seriously, as you can join up on a club/society level rather than on a recreational level.
