Murdoch University’s flagship campus in Perth is one of the largest urban campuses in Australia and boasts a vast expanse of natural bushland teeming with unique wildlife.
The Perth campus is adjacent to a new urban centre known as the Murdoch Specialised Activity Centre, where an integrated knowledge and health precinct will support partnerships with government and industry to further innovative medical, environmental and scientific research.
A new teaching and learning space in the Perth CBD has brought Murdoch into the heart of WA. A planned vertical campus in the city centre, including a Digital Futures Academy and an eSports hub, will deliver a vibrant knowledge-based precinct adjacent to existing retail, recreation, entertainment, accommodation and transport infrastructure.
A Mandurah campus, located in Perth’s fast-growing southern corridor, is home to popular nursing degrees taught in state-of-the-art simulation suites. A third campus in Rockingham hosts Murdoch’s pro bono law clinic SCALES and the University’s successful pathways and enabling programs, which give students from a variety of backgrounds the opportunity to access a tertiary education through alternative entry streams.
