Campus location

We are located in the heart of Canberra, in the inner-city suburb of Acton.

Parking on campus

If you're driving, park on campus for free in the dedicated parking areas - just follow the signs. 

If you're familiar with ANU and our parking areas, be aware that with so many guests expected on campus for Open Day, some of our parking areas will be closed to limit the number of cars on campus and increase pedestrian safety.

Get started at Open Day

When you first arrive at Open Day, head to one of our Information Tents to pick up a Course Guide, Open Day Program and touch base with our Student Ambassadors. As current ANU students they are a great source of information and will be happy to answer any questions about ANU.

Union Court Redevelopment

You may have heard we are redeveloping our Union Court precinct.

The revitalisation of Union Court and University Avenue will combine the best elements of existing campus life and bring a new learning, cultural, physical and social experience to us in a village setting. 

The Pop-Up Reunion Village will serve as the temporary heart of the campus for students and staff from mid-2017 through to early 2019 when the revitalisation will be complete. The Pop-Up provides food, services and with extended opening hours throughout the year, and is designed for constant events and activities.

Make sure to check out the new Pop-Up Reunion Village on Open Day and take a virtual tour of the future revitalised Union Court.
