Travelling to Wollongong Campus from the South Coast
If you are travelling from the Kiama and Bomaderry areas to Wollongong Campus public transport is available and is encouraged. Use Trip Planner to plan your trip for all NSW public transport modes. Catch the train (the most southerly train station is at Bomaderry) and the closest station to Wollongong campus is the North Wollongong Train station. Opal fares apply and an Opal Student Concession is available to eligible students. For information on Opal cards and how to apply for a Opal Student Concession visit - uow.edu.au/student/central/travelpasses for details. There are shuttle buses that connect the North Wollongong train station to the campus. You can catch the free UOW North Gong Shuttle bus (refer to the North Gong Shuttle timetable.pdf for operating times) or the NSW State Government Gong Shuttle (on weekends). North Wollongong Station is also within walking distance of the campus (approximately 20 minutes)
If you are travelling from further south there is a coach service that runs the full length of the south coast however this is best suited for one off trips and isn’t recommended as a daily commuter option.
Driving is an option however parking is limited and you should expect traffic congestion at peak times around the University. If you must drive then carpool with three or more people is the best option. Refer to the UOW Parking webpage for more information on parking.
