The RD Watt Building, the home of the Sydney Policy Lab

Our collaborative space

Spaces for collaborative projects and available to all
The lab is designed to support collaborative and hands-on work. Researchers share working spaces with external partners, industry, government and community members who need to workshop solutions for policy change.

The Sydney Policy Lab is in the newly refurbished RD Watt Building on the University of Sydney’s Camperdown Campus. The lab’s spaces facilitate collaborative work, from video conferences and board meetings to participatory workshops and larger public meetings.

Our spaces include:

  • a small meeting room for up to 10 people
  • a large meeting room for up to 20 people
  • a seminar room for up to 90 people – theatre-style – or 60 people at tables, with an adjacent reception area that can accommodate up to 30 people
  • a co-working space available to those affiliated with the lab for their everyday use, after they make an individual enquiry.

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 and express your interest.
