Darwin Waterfront

For some years it has been apparent to the University that establishment of a presence in or near the Darwin CBD would be an important next step in meeting the vision articulated in the Territory 2030 Strategic Plan, and shared by the University, of Darwin being recognised as a University city.

The Waterfront is home the Asia Pacific College of Business and Law and provides a space for students and staff who need to access our facilities, while in the CBD. 

For the University the location should strengthen connection with public and private stakeholders in the CBD and provides the opportunity to be at the forefront in our business and law course offerings to make an impact in a changing global environment.

Opening hours

The building is open from 7.45am - 9pm Monday to Friday.
