Getting here

Whether you're catching public transport, driving or getting fresh air and exercise, there are plenty of ways to get to UWA on Open Day.

We've compiled a quick list of transport options to help you plan ahead.

Getting to UWA

Driving and parking

If driving to UWA is your only option, take note that the speed limit on campus is 25km/hr and consider carpooling with a friend.

Parking is free of charge in the red and yellow bays on campus.

Refer to the UWA parking map for parking options. We also recommend you look to use the Nedlands campus (car park 31 and 42) should you not be able to find parking on the main campus. The main campus is just a short walk away from the Nedlands campus via the Stirling Hwy underpass.

Public transport

Buses to the Perth campus are frequent, with regular services from the city, Subiaco, Morley and along Stirling Highway. Buses are managed by Transperth, and some services are subsidised by the University.

The following bus routes offer weekend services to UWA:

  • CircleRoute (routes 998 and 999). Refer to Timetable 200.
  • Route 24 (East Perth – Claremont Station via Shenton Park and Broadway). Refer to Timetable 44.
  • Route 102 (Elizabeth Quay Bus Station – Cottesloe Station via Claremont Station). Refer to Timetable 31.
  • Route 103 (East Perth – Fremantle Station via Stirling Hwy). Refer to Timetable 32.
  • Route 950 (Morley Bus Station – QEII Medical Centre via Beaufort Street, Perth City and UWA). Refer to Timetable 202.

Timetabled services will operate across the Transperth network. Bus information for UWA can be found at Uni and TAFE Services.

If you’re planning on using public transport to get to Open Day, the Transperth JourneyPlanner is a great tool to use.

Using public transport has numerous benefits:

  • Remove the hassle of finding a car park.
  • Make the most of your travel time by planning your Open Day schedule online.
  • Improve your health and activity levels.

Cycling by bike

Cycling is ideal if you live within 15km of campus. It's also a great way to stay in shape and improve your mental health. By cycling, you get your exercise while travelling to campus and arrive alert and energised. The time difference between cycling and driving is minimal and you'll avoid the cost and hassle of parking.

Walking to UWA

If you live within two kilometres of the University, why not consider walking to campus? Walking keeps your body active and in shape. It also clears your mind and promotes a positive outlook.
