  • The White Room

    The White Room is a design facility that simulates a real-world graphic design company. It is a modern, state-of-the-art facility where international students gain valuable practical experience working on design projects using world-class design studios equipped with the latest MAC workstations.

  • EcoSkills Training Centre

    With the aim of engaging the student community to be part of our environmental sustainability efforts, Hornby Campus has completed a unique full-scale student construction project, designed to demonstrate and integrate environmental sustainability principles into training for students from all faculties, from architectural technology to land management and electro technology. International students benefit immensely by the exposure and experience they get by training at the EcoSkills Training Centre.


  • I first came to study in a University in Sydney but found that I did not like the course. From my research, I found that the Diploma of Building Design offered at Hornsby Campus suited my interests and hence chose to study this course. I am enjoying my study here and it is a great learning environment with very passionate teachers. In five years from now, I would like to see myself working as an Architect in an Architecture Firm.
