Liverpool City campus: Ngara Ngura building

About Liverpool City campus

The Ngara Ngura building, Western Sydney University’s Liverpool City campus, began operations in 2018. Located at 100 Macquarie Street, it is the first major university presence in Liverpool and is already having a significant economic impact.

Over the 10-floor vertical campus, an estimated 750 Nursing and Midwifery students use state-of-the-art nursing simulation facilities. Western’s Faculty of Nursing is the highest ranked in Australia. The campus caters for a further 1,700 students of social work, anthropology, criminology and policing who learn in digitally-enhanced teaching spaces.

Western Sydney University’s Chancellor, Professor Peter Shergold AC, with Aunty Mae Robinson, who helped draft the first ever Aboriginal Education Policy in NSW and has received more than 20 awards for her work in advancing education. The foyer of the Ngara Ngura building is named in her honour.

Respecting traditional owners

The Ngara Ngura building sits on the land of the Cabrogal Clan of the Darug Nation. Western Sydney University acknowledges and respects the Traditional Owners (and Custodians) of the Lands: the Eora, Darug, D’harawal and Wiradjuri Peoples on which our campuses now stand.

Ngara Ngura loosely translates to “exchange knowledge by listening, by hearing and by thinking”.

We continue to value the generations of knowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples embed within our University. The University serves a region with the highest urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population in Australia.
