The Sydney Policy Lab is in the RD Watt Building on the University of Sydney’s Camperdown Campus. Our spaces facilitate collaborative work, from video conferences and board meetings to participatory workshops and larger public meetings.
Please note that campus is currently closed due to COVID-19, and we are not able to take any bookings for our spaces at this time.
Our spaces include:
We invite you to express interest in hosting your event in our meeting rooms and seminar rooms. Affiliated partners and community organisations, in particular, enjoy priority access to these spaces, although we do our best to support the needs of any group looking to gather to effect policy change.
If you are affiliated with the Lab and interested in everyday use of our co-working space, please get in touch to enquire about availability.
The Lab commissioned local and international photographers to capture the diversity of everyday life across Sydney. Scenes from festivals, public transport, museums, libraries, universities, parks, urban gardens, community centres, eateries, city streets and other places of gathering were documented in early 2019. Some of the highlights are included below, and a selection is on exhibition in our building.
