Yeah it's called Kensington park but if you get there after 9am then you will likely have to go up Doncaster Ave or further down cottengham street with ends up being a 15+ min walk to main walkway
Yeah true but all day parking and if u live far 15Min walk better than public transport
Rip if first class is upper campus though

That's tru. Took me 100 min yesterday from my front door to sitting down in class while being uncomfortable on a hot train, standing for 10 min waiting for the bus then being delayed because of bad traffic due to light rail. Driving plus walking will take 70minutes (~85 in peak time with traffic) plus another 15 min to walk to class. So it ends up taking the same time or quicker. My car does about 10L/100km so it ends up costing about $12/day driving which is less than opal fare anyways or if ur consession its 5$ more and tbh that's worth it getting to sit in ur own aircon car listen to ur own music comfortably with no people sitting next to you.

If ur class is on upper campus, you can take the 400 bus which ends up being $1.05 anways

too bad randwick council are cunts and changed the parking signages to 1/2hr or 1hr on barker street near the maccas

Soz for the stupid questions but r u allowed to go to the gym and swimming pool for free?

Also r high school students allowed to go to the UNSW library for free?

And how on earth do you take in so much content when at uni, there's so much content in a little amount of time?

1. No
2. Yes, but you will need to apply for a card in order to borrow.
3. That's why there are grades, exams etc. It's meant to be competitive and only the best get the high marks.

study depends on what subjects you do

During exam time, I think a section of the library is 24/7. But that's only for a few weeks per year.

You would be going to campus security with any issues like that. The librarian is a manager, not someone who works on the floor.
