Services and facilities
Our Central Coast students benefit from outstanding facilities, many of which are purpose-built to replicate industry situations.
At Ourimbah, we are particularly proud of our unique, state-of-the-art teaching and learning spaces for our degrees in Exercise and Sport Science, Podiatry, Oral Health Therapy, Nursing and Food Science and Human Nutrition.
Before venturing out into business and community placements, our students develop their practical and theoretical skills in purpose-built teaching facilities including:
- Exercise science and exercise physiology testing facilities - part of the new $7.7million Exercise and Sport Science and Psychology building.
- Clinical laboratories for nursing, oral health and podiatry - students develop skills in settings that simulate hospital wards.
- Sara Lee Test Kitchen - students develop and test food product concepts
The Ourimbah Library is a vibrant learning and community hub on the Central Coast.
Libraries have changed and are no longer just about books. At UON Central Coast, students and staff have access to:
- 276 computers and a range of printing/scanning services
- Eight study rooms with access to computers and screens
- Wireless and power connections for laptops and other devices
- A service-desk offering 24 hour support from library staff

We are proud to offer a number of clinics on the Central Coast. The services provided by these clinics benefit staff, students and the broader community.
Located at Wyong Hospital, the UON and Central Coast Local Health District Podiatry Clinic is a student teaching clinic providing care for public and private patients at minimal cost.
The Psychology Clinic provides both a service to the community and a training facility for the postgraduate students within the School of Psychology at the University of Newcastle.
The UON Oral Health Centre is a student teaching clinic open to the general public. Current Bachelor of Oral Health students provide a range of services, under the direct supervision of qualified dental practitioners, at minimal or no cost.
