The Saint Josephine Bakhita Campus, Blacktown

ACU's Blacktown Campus will be named in honour of St Josephine Bakhita, patron saint of Sudan and of victims of slavery. True to its mission as a Catholic University, ACU Blacktown will be distinctly Catholic but welcoming of people of all faiths and none; inviting them to engage fully in an authentic Catholic university experience in Western Sydney.

Saint Josephine is an inspiration to people everywhere and her prayers and example will help us contribute to the mission and priorities of the Diocese of Parramatta, in which St Josephine Bakhita Campus is located.

Welcome to ACU Blacktown

Based in the heart of Greater Western Sydney, Blacktown is home to thousands of high school students, university students, and businesses. We’re delighted to bring a university campus to the heart of this vibrant community, and build an opportunity for you to study where you’ll feel at home.

Getting around Blacktown

As the largest suburb in New South Wales, Blacktown is well connected with public transport options as well as cycling and walking routes. Here are some tips to help you get around.

The Great West Walk links significant areas throughout western Sydney including reserves, parks, bush trails and footpaths. Visit the Blacktown City Council to see what’s on offer.

Riding to work or university is a great way to get fit, save time and money, and do your bit to help the environment. The Blacktown Bike Plan provides a map of existing and new bike paths in the area, or explore Cycleway Finder.

The Blacktown Campus is well serviced by buses, with many routes stopping on or near Main Street. We recommend that you use the Sydney Buses Trip Planner to plan your bus journey to the campus. You can also see a network map at Busways.

Our campus is located just a two-minute walk from Blacktown Station. The station is serviced by the Blue Mountains, Western and Richmond lines. To plan your trip to Blacktown Station, we recommend that you use the City Rail Trip Planner.

If you’ve checked out available sustainable transport options but have chosen to drive, there are a few things to consider.

There is no parking on campus for students at any time.

On-street parking is available, but very limited in the Blacktown area. Paid carparks are available nearby.
