New College Village

Off Campus Accommodation

UNSW is well connected to the city by bus (20-30 minutes), so attendees may choose to stay in a variety of locations around Sydney. Regardless of where you decide to stay, we recommend attendees from academic institutions use HotelsCombined for their booking as they will be eligible for a 10% discount.

Apart from at UNSW itself, we recommend looking at hotels around Coogee Beach, Darling Harbour, Hyde Park, Circular Quay and The Rocks. These localities provide easy access to UNSW as well as to interesting local attractions. More information about these areas and other Sydney attractions can be found at the Sydney Visitor Information page.

The registration payment system offers participants the opportunity to make a reservation at a discounted rate at two hotels at Coogee Beach, which is less than 3 km from the conference venue at UNSW.
