Location of the Academy Library

The Canberra Campus of the University of New South Wales 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 take the entrance off Northcott Drive. The Academy Library is Building 13 (purple on the Campus Map). Free parking is located at carparks 90 or 91. Please note it may be difficult finding a vacant parking spot between 9.30am – 3pm during semester or when conferences are on. Also carpark 90 is a brisk 10 minute walk away from the Academy Library.

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.

Taxi will drop you at the taxi rank at the ADFA roundabout in front 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 02 5114 5245 (Academy Library Service Desk) and if visiting a particular person please give security staff the name.
