UTS playing a leading role in Australian sport at Moore Park
Sydney’s elite Moore Park sporting precinct is home to the iconic SCG and Allianz Stadium, as well as the headquarters of high-profile organisations including the NRL, Rugby Australia, Cricket NSW, the Swans and Sydney FC. Now it’s home to UTS too.
Our campus now stretches to this sporting mecca, where more than 700 UTS staff, students and researchers are working and learning across sport and exercise science, physiotherapy and sports media.
This is an Australian first, integrating an academic precinct within world-class sporting facilities. The location is giving unmatched opportunities to UTS students and researchers to collaborate with professional athletes, coaches and sporting organisations.
The UTS facilities are inside the Rugby Australia Building, which opened in late 2017. Spanning four floors, they include high-tech research labs, state-of-the-art classrooms and study spaces, a multi-purpose sports hall, a resistance training facility and specialist post-grad learning spaces.
Here’s your chance to take a look inside:

Presenter 7 – Joanne Hausler
This custom-built facility is giving unmatched opportunities to UTS students and researchers looking to build a career in Australia’s sport and exercise industry. And it’s allowing UTS to play a leading role in the future of Australian sport.
Designed by architects Populous, the building's eye-catching exterior also enhances its green credentials. A fixed aluminium shading device provides shade from direct sun, reducing the energy required for cooling.
The stairway is a practical pathway for movement between the three main UTS floors. It’s also a gathering space for students as they come and go from classes. The green steps and pink handrails echo the colour scheme of UTS's former Kuring-gai campus, once home to UTS sport and exercise science programs.
Multi-purpose sports hall
The sports hall accommodates coaching activities and other teaching practicals, as well as rehabilitation work conducted by the university’s physiotherapy program. This versatile space can be used for a range of sports, as well as for performances or community events.
State-of-the-art research labs
The Moore Park research labs give UTS researchers state-of-the-art facilities to conduct their work in areas including exercise physiology, biomechanics, training sciences, skill acquisition, strength and conditioning, and injury management and prevention.
