UTS Science is located on the UTS City Campus in the heart of Sydney.
UTS has invested over $110 million to its science facilities, making it one of the best in Australia. Students gain access to specialised advanced laboratories containing state-of-the art equipment and instruments used in research, industry and commercially, for example in chemical or diagnostic analysis or biological imaging.
By providing access to state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, our students and researchers not only gain essential experience in using such equipment, but they are provided with the facilities needed to produce credible research.
Vicki Sara Building (Building 7)
The Vicki Sara Building (Building 7) offers research, teaching, learning, and social spaces for the faculty, as well as general teaching spaces and public areas for the general UTS community.
Overlooking Alumni Green, the new building is connected to the adjacent UTS Science Building, while also providing pedestrian connections to Thomas Street.
UTS Science has 15 teaching laboratories dedicated to teaching and learning. Each laboratory is fitted with modern scientific and analytical instruments, electronic lecterns and computers. Modern computer labs with 24/7 access, advanced computing facilities with the latest mathematical and statistical software are also available to assist with student work and learning.
Science Super Lab
Our Science Super Lab is one of only two in Australia. It has been modelled on the Super Lab at London Metropolitan University. The design has been adapted to meet the specific requirements of the Faculty of Science.
The lab consists of 25 workbenches, each sitting eight students. Each student has a monitor in front of them which will show a combination of information from the demonstrator station as well student’s own data input from their bench computer. There is also around 60 breakout spaces, some equipped with smart boards, for group discussions and student presentations.

Crime Scene Simulation Lab
Forensic Science students at UTS have access to a unique Crime Scene Simulation Lab. Set up like a city apartment, the lab provides students with practical experience in crime scene investigations.
Mathematics and computing facilities
Students studying mathematics and statistics are supported with current mathematical and statistical software, modern computer labs with 24/7 access, e-learning support, regional and national advanced computing facilities, and peer-mentoring.
Our mathematicians and statisticians work together with businesses to provide advice and solutions. It is also one of the founders, and equity holder of ac3, a private company that manages IT infrastructure and also looks after supercomputers that are jointly owned by NSW Universities. Students will gain access to these machines which are essential to research, providing you with world class facilities.
