The City Campus is located in the beautiful Manning Building, right in the heart of Sydney’s business district.

As well as being regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Sydney is also one of the most exciting places to study and work. The City Campus area boasts the highest residential density in Australia and is one of the liveliest precincts in the Sydney CBD. The building is close to World Square Shopping Centre and is only a few minutes’ walk from great transport links via train at Central Station and a Light Rail (tram) stop at China Town. A short walk will take students to the entertaining areas of Thai Town, Chinatown, Darling Harbour and Barangaroo Waterfront, all offering endless options for eateries from cafes and bars to world-class five-star dining – and everything in between.

The Manning Building has high historical significance and is an important building to the City of Sydney. The facade dates to 1892 and, at the time it was built, made a significant contribution to the surrounding precinct, including the recently restored Capitol Theatre, which is in the same block.

Internally, the Manning Building has been extensively modified and renovated. Entering through the impressive lobby, students have high security access to state-of-the-art facilities. Lectures are offered on the 4th floor in Aspire’s contemporary training and executive education centre, which showcases a vibrant and innovative learning environment, with expansive classrooms, modern study areas and an abundance of natural light, as well as complimentary refreshment facilities.
