UWA's two campuses meld heritage architecture and state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities within two distinctive campus environments.
On the Swan River, just minutes from the city of Perth, studying at the main UWA campus provides one of Australia’s most picturesque university grounds.
The leafy campus boasts open courtyards and plentiful garden spaces which make studying, catching up with friends or just relaxing outdoors both tranquil and enjoyable.
With more than 22,000 students and 3500 staff, as well as cafés, libraries, sporting facilities, galleries and shops, the Perth campus is more like a small town than a school.
The distinctive mix of heritage architecture and contemporary buildings contain state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities, lecture and performance theatres, tutorial spaces, studios and laboratories. This combination creates the perfect learning environment.
City and coast
The campus is just minutes from the centre of Perth, Australia's fourth-largest city. The campus offers an enviable combination of urban sophistication and international flavour. There are also the lifestyle benefits of a coastal resort and the rich cultural mix of a place many times larger.
The Albany Centre
The Albany Centre is on the southern coast of Western Australia. Albany is a five-hour drive from Perth. Here you can experience all that regional WA has to offer, while studying at university. Located in Albany’s historic Old Post Office building, the UWA Albany Centre offers students a high-tech learning environment, using the best principles of flexible delivery.
Multimedia technology enables Albany students to experience Perth lectures over the internet, while small classes led by well-qualified local tutors balance technology with face-to-face interactive teaching and learning.
The Centre also offers after-hours access, a student common room and spectacular harbour views. The Centre is a small, friendly learning community with a range of support services. Awards and scholarships are also available for future and enrolled students.
The Albany Centre provides an excellent transition year for country school leavers who want to start university without the added stress and expense of moving to the city. For city students, studying at the Albany Centre offers a ‘sea-change’ experience that will bring a new perspective to their studies.
Enrolment options include a first year or full degree enrolment in a range of courses.
Surrounded by beautiful nature reserves, Albany is a coastal seaport which offers a range of activities from whale watching to bushwalking. Inland, Bluff Knoll in the Stirling Range is 1095 metres above sea level and is one of the few places in WA where it snows.
