The University of Newcastle (UON) plays an important part in the renewed sense of vibrancy in the Newcastle CBD and the City Campus is very much at the
centre of the city's burgeoning arts scene.
The UON City precinct comprises University House, the Conservatorium of Music, and NeW Space currently under development. University House, a landmark
art-deco sandstone building opposite Civic Park, is home to Watt Space Gallery, the Graduate School of Business and the University of Newcastle Legal Centre
- Watt Space Gallery is a contemporary art space that exhibits the work of current UON students.
- The UNLC offers a range of services for members of the public, including free legal advice and information.
- The Conservatorium of Music prides itself on engaging with the community through local and international concerts hosted in the 400-seat Harold Lobb
Concert Hall. The Conservatorium also caters to the local community with music lessons for all ages and levels of experience.
