Where to find us

The RD Watt Building is located on Science Road at the northern Parramatta Road boundary, a two-minute walk to your left as you enter campus via the Ross Street Gate. The building is a recently refurbished sandstone building, next to the new Social Sciences building.

Event and meeting spaces are located on Level 2, on the ground floor as you enter. The Sydney Policy Lab offices are located on Level 5.

There is limited parking a five-minute walk away near the Charles Perkins Centre, as well as some street parking throughout the back streets of Glebe across Parramatta Road. Generally, parking is on a 'first serve' basis. Please contact us if you require accessibility parking on campus. 

We strongly recommend travelling here by public transport. 


The RD Watt Building is accessible by train by alighting at Central Station and taking a short bus trip from Central up Parramatta Road, or it is a 2.2km (approximately 30-minute) walk along Parramatta Road.

Alternatively, there is a train option to Redfern Station. From there it is a 2km (approximately 25 minutes) walk along Lawson then Abercrombie Street over the footbridge, through Eastern Avenue onto Manning Road and Western Avenue.

Both walking routes are paved and are mainly flat, supporting accessibility access.


The RD Watt Building is conveniently located off Science Road and near Parramatta Road and offers extensive coverage from Sydney Buses.

The closest bus stops are:
