Teaching facilities


Murdoch's main campus is 15km south of Perth and, at 227 hectares, is the biggest of any Australian university. We also have campuses in Rockingham and the Mandurah region.

So what lurks inside those big, impressive buildings?

Our $3.7 million Law Building has Perth's most modern Moot Court. We try real cases in a real court environment; and the latest in video satellite technology lets us compete with other Law Schools around the world.

Engineering students get real-world experience at Murdoch’s scaled engineering plant. It's the only one of its kind in Perth (and one of the only plants of its kind on any uni campus in the world).

The $1.7 million Media Arts Centre features TV and radio studios, a newsroom, editing suites, digital postproduction facilities and more.

Agriculture and biotechnology students can learn and discover at the State Agricultural Biotechnology Centre, with access to incredible equipment and facilities for research and development.

The Chiropractic Clinic features 11 consulting rooms and a fully equipped gym. Students work here with Government-registered Chiropractors on real patients.

Murdoch’s veterinary facilities are world famous. We have a working farm, a vet clinic open to the public, a fully equipped Veterinary Hospital (complete with cancer and dermatology clinics), a Pet Emergency Centre and our world class Equine Centre with WA’s only equine operating theatres.

Our new Library Learning Common opened in 2007, providing a "one-stop-shop" for student learning and services, as well as housing our First Year Experience Coordinator who can help you settle into life as a university student.

Add to this impressive list our computer labs, campus-wide wireless networks and superb library, and you can see why Murdoch is the perfect place to begin your voyage of discovery.
