Bringing students and staff together in a hub of discovery

The Macquarie story

Macquarie University is recognised globally for its pre-eminence in key research disciplines, as well as producing graduates who are among the most sought-after professionals in the world.

Since our foundation in 1964, we have aspired to be a different type of university: one unbound by ivory towers and sandstone walls. Rather, we are focused on fostering collaboration between students, academics, industry and society, encouraging all to traverse the boundaries of their own perspectives and effect change.
