The NYU–University of Sydney Partnership

Students entering the Science House at NYU Sydney.


All NYU Sydney classes take place on the University of Sydney’s Camperdown/Darlington campus, which is known for its striking old-world architecture. Dating back to 1850, the campus is home to six libraries, four art galleries, and the new Chau Chak Wing Museum.

NYU Residence Hall: Regiment

NYU Sydney students live alongside local students at University of Sydney’s Regiment student accommodation. The Regiment Building offers modern rooms and every amenity imaginable within a pedestrian-friendly distance of classes.

What’s more, students can flex their creative muscles in the building’s designated makerspaces, music rooms, and technology and learning hubs.

What to Study

NYU Sydney is known for its environmental science and media, culture, and communication courses. But, because the oldest Indigenous civilization calls Australia home, courses on Aboriginal art and anthropology are also popular.

What’s another benefit of NYU’s partnership with the University of Sydney (USYD)? You can take USYD courses and participate in its industry, business, and government projects. You’ll partner with leading corporate and community organizations, like IBM and Adobe, to craft innovative solutions to real-world problems.

Beach Vibes

Australia has some of the most unique ecosystems in the world. And NYU Sydney students travel to the nearby coast to make observations and gather samples.

Working for the Weekend

NYU Sydney students and professors head to the Blue Mountains National Park for guided weekend tours. They follow the same path Charles Darwin took in 1836. And they discuss the geological and biological attributes of the area as well as the region’s Aboriginal history.
