Locations and facilities

Supporting teaching and research in medicine and health

Based throughout NSW and with partners and affiliates around the globe, our facilities support a wide network of medicine and health students, teachers, clinicians and researchers across a range of disciplines.

Our locations

Our Sydney Precinct incorporates our Camperdown/Darlington campus, which includes the new Susan Wakil Health Building, a purpose-built facility for medicine and health students, and the majority of the Faculty of Medicine and Health schools.

Many of our courses are taught here including nursing, health sciences, medical sciences, medicine, pharmacy, dentistry and public health. The precinct also includes two of our clinical schools (Central Clinical SchoolConcord Clinical School).

The North Precinct stretches across northern Sydney where we work in partnership with numerous health and industry partners to facilitate world class education and learning opportunities.

Teaching and research activity is facilitated broadly across the North Precinct at the Northern Clinical School. The Kolling Institute for Medical Research, a joint venture between the University and the Northern Sydney Local Health District (NSLHD), is also located in the North Precinct in the grounds of the Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH) and hosts both educators and researchers.

Our West Precinct encompasses facilities at both Westmead and Nepean and includes three clinical schools (Westmead Clinical School, Nepean Clinical School, Sydney Children’s Hospital Clinical School). Students and researchers in the West Precinct can undertake study and research in dentistry, medicine, medical sciences, nursing and public health.

To further embed our staff and students across the West Precinct, we have invested around $80 million to date in infrastructure, upgrades to education facilities and academic programs and initiatives.

In 2021, the University partnered with Westmead Hospital and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead to launch the new Westmead Hospital Block K, a key facility for increasing integration with our partners and supporting our work to embed research and teaching across the precinct.
