Detailed campus map

The UNSW Canberra Campus is located at the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA). ADFA is located in an Australian bushland setting less than five kilometres from the city centre and the Canberra airport.

It is easiest to enter the campus from Northcott Drive. The Academy Library is Building 13 (purple on the Campus Map). Parking is located at car park 90 or 91. Please note it may be difficult finding a vacant parking spot between 9.30am – 3pm during the semester or when conferences are on. 

The Academy Library is next to the café in the centre of the campus. If you get lost most people on campus will be able to direct you.

Public Transport: A taxi rank and bus stops (Action Buses) are located on campus.

Taxis will drop you at the taxi rank at the ADFA roundabout in front of the Officers Mess (Building 6) which is a 2-minute walk to the Academy Library. Staff at the Library Service Desk can call a taxi for you if required.

UNSW Canberra is on Defence owned land and buildings and is a military base. We are currently at the security level of Safebase “Charlie” which means that there is still public access to the whole site but all UNSW and Defence staff are to have relevant identification on them at all times. If visitors to the Academy Library are stopped by security, please say you are here to visit the Academy Library and give them 0434 369 043 (Academy Library Service Desk) and if visiting a particular person please give security staff the name.
