Distinctive, progressive and transformational
Macquarie University was established in 1964 as a bold experiment in higher education. Built to break from traditions and work in tandem with industry, we strive for the extraordinary by challenging convention and embracing different views.
Led by our academics and researchers, we continue our pioneering approach – from inventing Wi-Fi with the CSIRO, to enhancing graduate employability through personalised degrees and degrees co-designed with industry.
In recognition of the Aboriginal country on which Macquarie University is situated, our main campus in Macquarie Park is known as the Wallumattagal Campus.
Macquarie offers world-class facilities for study, research and leisure – many of them brand new.
Community and campus
Our campus boasts beautiful green spaces, accommodation, lifestyle facilities, food outlets and much more.
