  • Learn in the center of town - The main Callaghan campus lies about four miles from the center of the city of Newcastle on 345 acres - a site that has gained international recognition for practicing ecologically sustainable principles.
  • Enjoy modern facilities - For learning, you will find an array of libraries, computer centers, and a learning-assistance center. In terms of recreation, you will have access to the Sports Forum and Aquatic Center - complete with a pool, fitness center, and more.
