Our Central Coast (Ourimbah) campus is small enough to be friendly but big enough to be a place of excellence.
You’ll find modern facilities set in lush green gardens on the edge of beautiful bushland, all just a stone’s throw from both Newcastle and Sydney.
The campus is shared by the University of Newcastle, TAFE and the Central Coast Community College, as well as local businesses.
Approximately $20 million has recently been spent installing new facilities at the campus including new teaching and learning spaces for our degrees in exercise science, teaching and nursing. The library has also received a substantial extension and upgrade including a new café and revitalised 24-hour access computer lab.
‘The quad’ is the ideal place to relax on the grass, read a book, or enjoy a coffee. Speaking of coffee, there are two on-campus cafes and smaller coffee stations scattered around the grounds.
You can also take advantage of the cafeteria, bookshop and stationery retailer.
Whether you want to drive to uni or catch public transport, our Central Coast campus is ultra-convenient – there’s onsite parking and Ourimbah train station is just a short stroll away.
The campus is located approximately halfway between Newcastle and Sydney and just a five minute drive from the F3 Freeway.
As a smaller campus, you’ll get the opportunity to build a close connection with your lecturers and benefit from personalised support.
Several degrees are only offered at our Central Coast campus including podiatry, food science and human nutrition, exercise and sport science, and oral health.
