For those driving, there is parking available around the campus for a small fee. Please see the parking website for details: As we are currently out of session, there should be ample parking available.

For anyone coming from town or the Medina Hotel, Wollongong operates a free bus, called the Gong Shuttle, which travels around the city both clockwise (the 55A) and counter-clockwise (the 55C). It can be picked up any bus stop marked with a bright green ―Free Gong Shuttle‖ post, and travels between the University and the conference accommodation at the Medina Hotel on Market Street. Take the 55C to the University, and the 55A back to the Hotel. The free bus runs from 7am – 10pm, Monday – Friday and 8am – 6pm on weekends.
