Queen Mary Building

Rooftop city views with a memorable student community
A short stroll from campus, the Queen Mary Building offers sanctuary from the demands of university life with well thought out and inviting communal spaces in a historic Sydney landmark.

Workout in the 24-hour gym, have a BBQ with your neighbours on the rooftop terrace, chill out in the theatre with friends or create your sound in one of three music rooms. There is also a huge shared study space perfect for hitting the books in the company of others and a large communal kitchen where residents can inspire each other’s palate.

Queen Mary Building
