Question:

I notice that University locations include a string of letters and numbers, for example, W6A 543. What do they stand for?

Answer:

From February 2016 the signage and building addresses will be going through a period of change to a more conventional style address, eg 18 Wally's Walk.

You can find out more information regarding the change to building addresses and signage on the project update.

Many University locations will be displayed with both styles of address until this project concludes.

In the original style of address a building number is followed by a room number eg W6A 543  would be Building W6A, Room 543

The building and carpark numbers are based on geographic zones:

 

  • C = Central (the Library, Campus Hub and central courtyard are Central)
  • E = East   (F = further east than E)
  • W = West  (X = further west than W)
  • N = North
  • S = South
