Campus culture

From weekly farmers’ markets and movie screenings to the temporary exhibits at our Art Gallery and theatre performances, there’s never a dull moment at Macquarie.


Getting here is easy. We’re the only university in Australia with its own train station, with services running to and from the city centre every 15 minutes during the day. You can also drive, ride a bike or catch a bus.
