Newcastle City campus

The University of Newcastle plays an important part in the renewed sense of vibrancy in the Newcastle CBD and our Newcastle City campus is very much at the centre of the city's burgeoning arts scene.

NeW Space is a $95 million landmark education precinct under development by the University of Newcastle in the heart of Newcastle's CBD. NeW Space will harness the latest in technology and innovation in teaching and learning to deliver a world-class student experience by engaging students in new and exciting ways.

Our wonderful Conservatorium of Music (part of the School of Creative Arts) is located in the Newcastle City campus. Its premier Concert Hall is a much-loved performance venue for local, interstate and international artists.

Also in our city campus are the Newcastle Legal Centre and Newcastle Graduate School of Business which are located in NeW Space. Our student art gallery, the Watt Space Gallery, is located in the recently refurbished Northumberland House, directly across the road from University House.

Our city campus provides opportunities for us to strengthen our relations with the business community and increases the number of opportunities for our students to integrate their studies with work placements.

Being centrally located, the City campus enjoys easy access to the growing number of services and facilities available in the city and the ever-popular Darby Street, including great shopping, cafes, restaurants, bars and galleries. Marketown Shopping Centre is less than one kilometre away.
