The main campus is spread across the inner-city suburbs of Camperdown and Darlington, and has been noted for its beautiful architecture. The main campus is also the focus of the university’s student life, with the student-run University of Sydney Union (once referred to as “the Union”, but now known as “the USU”) in possession of three buildings – Wentworth, Manning and Holme Buildings.

These buildings house a large proportion of the university’s catering outlets, and provide space for recreational rooms, bars and function centres. The University of Sydney Library consists of 11 individual libraries located across the university’s various campuses. The Fisher and Health sciences libraries offer disability support services
