University House, is a landmark art-deco sandstone building directly opposite Civic Park. It is home to the School of Law, Legal Centre, and Graduate School of Business. Together with the School of Music and Conservatorium located in the nearby Civic Theatre precinct, it forms the Newcastle City Campus of the University which has been playing an important part in the renewed sense of vibrancy in the Newcastle CBD. Our city presence provides opportunities for us to strengthen our relations with the business community and increases the number of opportunities for our students to integrate their studies with work placements.

Being centrally located, the City Campus enjoys easy access to the growing number of services and facilities available in the city and the ever-popular Darby Street, including great shopping, cafes, restaurants, bars and galleries. Marketown Shopping Centre is less than one kilometre away.
