Cafes, bars, coffee carts, bookstores and a computer store are just a few of the outlets that make our University feel like a small village.
A caffeine hit or snack between lectures can make all the difference to your concentration levels, so it’s a good thing we’ve got places to refuel throughout campus.
Our campuses have a variety of food outlets with student-friendly prices. Camperdown/Darlington has more than 30 places to eat, ranging from healthy juice bars to hearty pub meals.
Noodles, Mexican, sushi, baguettes, salads – whatever you’re looking for, we’ve probably got it. If we don’t, there are a few hundred cafes and restaurants within a few blocks of campus.
Looking for textbooks or uni equipment? Need a haircut or new glasses?
You’ll find plenty of ways to spend your time and money on the main campus, with dozens of retail outlets and services open all semester.
For university merchandise, including the standard-issue student hoodie, head to the USYD Store on the ground floor of Holme. You’ll find stationery, lab coats and equipment, as well as University-branded gifts and souvenirs. While you're in the Holme Building, check out Footbridge Station to top up your Opal card or buy stationery and snacks.
On the Darlington side of campus, head to the USYD Store on Level 1 of the Jane Foss Russell plaza for snacks, stationery, news, more uni apparel and to top up your Opal card.
Many of our shops are managed by the University of Sydney Union (USU). For a full list of campus outlets, head to the USU website.
The Co-op is where you’ll find prescribed reading lists and textbooks. Rookie warning: queues during the first few weeks of semester are ridiculously long, and books for popular or mandatory subjects can sell out.
An alternative option is to check out the SRC Book Exchange, which sells (and buys) second-hand textbooks at a much cheaper price.
General practitioners and emergency medical care are available at two University health centres on the Camperdown and Darlington campuses. They’re open Monday to Friday, and bulk billing is available for most types of appointments. Read more about the University Health Service.
Campus IT, Hi-Q Computers and Australia Post are on hand for all your on and offline communication needs.
Even after the Welcome Week tents are packed away, there’s still a jam-packed calendar of events on and off-campus throughout semester to keep you entertained. Read more about them.
Wentworth, Manning House and Holme are the main social hubs on Camperdown Campus.
Keep your eyes open for free student magazines, posters and postcards with all the details on upcoming festivals, parties and events.
The big four banks are all represented on our main campus with ATMs, branches or both.
At the Wentworth Building, you’ll find the Commonwealth Bank and an NAB branch.
Westpac and ANZ have ATMs across campus, and there’s a rediATM in the Manning Building.
To find them all, see our online campus maps, and select 'ATMs' from the Amenities menu.
