Getting There

The UWA Business School is a state-of-the-art facility situated at the south end of The University of Western Australia Crawley Campus. Located next to the Swan River and surrounded by native trees, the Business School building has been designed to make the most of its natural surroundings and provides a calming and relaxed atmosphere. Take a short stroll down to the river in the breaks or just enjoy the view while sitting in the lounge areas located around the building.

The University of Western Australia (UWA) is a 10 minute drive from the Perth CBD. The UWA Business School can be accessed by car using Hackett Entrance 4. Please refer to the UWA Campus Map and UWA Parking Areas Map. Parking is free in yellow student permit bays on Festival days, due to the vacation period. Ticketed visitor parking is also available in the Business School car park (P9) and the Royal Perth Yacht Club.

UWA can also be accessed by public transport, but please note it will take approximately 12 minutes to walk from the bus stop on Stirling Highway to the Business School. Please refer to UWA's Public Transport information.
