Macquarie City Campus
New Sydney City campus opening in January 2017
Macquarie is expanding its city presence, with a new purpose-built teaching and meeting facility opening 3 January 2017 in the heart of Sydney's CBD. The design of the campus strives to capture the University’s global business and innovation outlook.
The new space, located on Level 24, 123 Pitt Street (Angel Place), will be used by Macquarie Applied Finance Centre (MAFC), the Faculty of Business and Economics (FBE), and Macquarie Graduate School of Management (MGSM), for their postgraduate offerings. Macquarie’s pre-existing city offices will be relocated to this one centralised location.
This new consolidated campus offers a unique opportunity for the alignment, collaboration, and forging of a premium postgraduate experience for all of Macquarie’s city students, with an improved learning environment, networking opportunities, and innovative teaching space.
Only postgraduate FBE, MAFC and MGSM students choosing electives in the CBD will be affected. Please contact your Student Administration office for more information.

When will the Master of Banking and Finance or the Master of Commerce in Finance be available at the City Campus?
These programs commence in Session 2 2017. We would highly recommend you to apply as soon as possible as class spaces at the City Campus are limited.
How big are the lecture rooms at the City Campus?
Units are normally run Seminar style therefore classes do not exceed 50 per class.
What does BYOD mean?
The City Campus is a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environment. You are encouraged to bring your personally owned devices (laptops, tablets, etc.) to the City Campus and to use these devices to access information and study on location.
There are also units that you may be required to complete that require the use of your own device. Students studying ACST603 will be required to bring a device capable of running the software required in the unit as stated in the Unit Guide.
Macquarie University also takes no responsibility for any lost or stolen personal devices or property.
I’m a current City location student (at 10 Spring Street). Can I complete the remainder of my degree at the City Campus?
I’m a North Ryde Student and I would like to transfer campus or study an individual unit at the City Campus. How do I do this?
I am a North Ryde student who is not currently admitted into one of the programs being offered in the City Campus. Can I still study units in the City Campus?
Yes, as long as you are admitted into a Masters program that requires a unit that is being offered in the City, then you can submit a request to enrol into a unit at the City Campus.
I’m a City Campus Student and I would like to transfer campus or study an individual unit at North Ryde. How do I do this?
If you would like to study individual units at North Ryde, please submit an enquiry via ask.mq.edu.au with the subject title: “City student wishing to study [UNIT] at North Ryde”.
The request will be assessed by the FBE Student Admin (BESS) team and you will be notified when your request has been completed.
Can I change my program?
If you wish to change your program, you will need to submit a new application for the program that you wish to transfer into.
Current International students will be able to apply via the Macquarie International Online Application Portal: https://admissions.mq.edu.au/index.cfm?event=security.showLogin&msg=eventsecured&fr=sp&en=default
Current Domestic students will be able to apply through the My Applications tab of eStudent: https://student1.mq.edu.au/
Will I be able to complete my degree in the same time?
Yes, you will be able to finish at the same time as long as you follow the prescribed program.
You should submit an ‘I expect to complete’ form via ask.mq.edu.au at the beginning of your final year of study. Submitting this form does not guarantee that you will meet award requirements. It only ensures your record will be checked to see if you qualify to graduate after the results are released for the session you have nominated.

All formal exams will be held at the City Campus during the formal exam period, at the same time as all North Ryde exams.
