University of Technology Sydney (UTS)

Another one to add to the list of Sydney universities is UTS, the Number 1 young person’s university. Originating from the Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts in 1833, the university has developed its education and reputation into what it is today. Due to its mechanical history, engineering is quite a popular course, with practical experience often required in parts of the undergraduate bachelor's degree. In doing so, UTS ensures a high employment rate by equipping their students with industry experience.

Public Transport

Public transport is quite easy for most students who live in the city or in the nearby suburbs. Buses and trains, as well as the light rail are popular modes of public transport for UTS students.

Trains

Central Station is a 10-minute walk from the main UTS building located on George St. The Southern Concourse leads out onto the Goods Line, which is now a walking path to connect the Southern Concourse of Central Station to the other UTS buildings such as the Dr Chau Chak Wing Building.

Buses

Located just outside of Central Station on Lee St is Railway Square, a commonly used bus station that has buses going towards Dulwich Hill, Bondi Junction and Coogee. Railway Square is a 4 minute walk from the UTS building and within walking distance of a lot of the buildings on campus.

Light rail

There are UTS buildings dotted all around the City. If you are attending the Haymarket campus, the light rail might be your best mode of transport. Buildings are located around Market City and Paddy’s Markets. This makes it easy for students to access via light rail. There is a stop just outside Paddy’s Markets and within walking distance of the Haymarket campus and Powerhouse Museum, where some classes are being held in at present.

On-Campus & Off-Campus Parking

The UTS Car Park can be accessed through Thomas St and can house up to 254 cars. However, you can’t pre-book the spaces as it is drive-in only, so you will want to get in quickly and early. Casual rates are $14 for an hour or a $27 flat rate. There are also other places that offer student discount rates for UTS students as a response to this particular issue. Wilson Parking in Market City offers UTS students discounted rates of $16 a day. So any students who frequent the Haymarket campus can park their vehicle within walking distance of their lecture hall or tutorial. There are also free parking spaces for bicycles and motorcycles for those who use them as well as street parking out the front of the Haymarket campus opposite the Wilson Parking in Market City. More parking areas can be found around Quay St.
