Getting to campus

  • The School of Art & Design campus is centrally located in the vibrant heart of Paddington and is well serviced by public transport options.

    We are within walking distance of two train stations:

    Buses also operate to and from Oxford St and nearby Flinders St: 

  • UNSW runs a free shuttle bus between the School of Art & Design in Paddington and the Kensington campus. 

    It operates hourly throughout each semester, excluding weekends and public holidays. 

    You’ll find the shuttle bus stops at the Greens Rd entrance (Paddington) and the Gate 8 entrance on High Street (UNSW Kensington). 

  • There is no parking on the Paddington campus and street parking is extremely limited. We recommend using public transport to get to our campus.

The Making Centre

The Making Centre is a group of interconnected workshops, studios and labs that are integral to the disciplines taught across the School of Art & Design.

Making in all its forms is a fundamental part of the School of Art & Design and The Making Centre team is there to support our students, staff and researchers through the whole process.
