Accommodation Information

UNSW Kensington Campus is located in the east-Sydney suburb of Kensington. The campus is slightly outside the Sydney metropolitan area; travel between UNSW and the city takes approximately 15 minutes by taxi, or 25 minutes by bus.


Locally, the best places to stay are the beachside suburb of Coogee, and the suburb of Randwick which neighbours the UNSW Kensington Campus. From Coogee and Randwick, there are a number of bus and light rail routes to many of Sydney’s main cultural centres and tourist attractions.
