About Macquarie University Sydney

Macquarie University is a public research university based in Sydney, Australia, in the suburb of Macquarie Park. Founded in 1964 by the New South Wales Government, it was the third university to be established in the metropolitan area of Sydney.

The university's five faculties, the Macquarie University Hospital and the Macquarie Graduate School of Management are located on the university's main campus in suburban Sydney. The Macquarie City Campus is located in the Sydney central business district.

The university is the first in Australia to fully align its degree system with the Bologna Accord.


Campus information

North Ryde campus: 126 hectares of park-like campus in the heart of Australia's largest high-technology precinct.

City campus: Centrally located campus in Sydney's financial district.

Macquarie University's main campus is located about 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) north-west of the Sydney CBD and is set on 126 hectares of rolling lawns and natural bushland. Located within the high-technology corridor of Sydney's north-west and in close proximity to Macquarie Park and its surrounding industries, Macquarie's location has been crucial in its development as a relatively research intensive university. The university is straddled between the suburbs of North Ryde and the later developed technology and industry focused Macquarie Park; however, the campus has its own postcode, 2109. The M2 Motorway runs parallel to the northern boundary of the campus and is accessible to traffic from the university.
