How to find us

The primary ANU campus is nestled on 145 hectares of beautifully maintained parklands in Acton, Canberra, adjacent to the CBD and Parliamentary Triangle. The campus is home to more than 150 buildings.

The ANU College of Law is contained in a U-shaped building in Acton on the north side of Lake Burley Griffin, just west of the city centre. The Law building is actually four buildings, #5, #6, #6A and #7, and contains several teaching and function venues. Both the ANU Law School and the ANU School of Legal Practice are housed in these College buildings

Campus maps

Driving & parking

Limited pay parking is available on campus, however, we suggest allowing extra time to find a park during teaching periods. You can find more detail on our parking map. Parking around ANU College of Law and Venues is often limited and we recommend that you arrive early when attending an event.
