North Ryde campus: 126 hectares of park-like campus in the heart of Australia's largest high-technology precinct.

City campus: Centrally located campus in Sydney's financial district.

Macquarie University's main campus is located about 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) north-west of the Sydney CBD and is set on 126 hectares of rolling lawns and natural bushland. Located within the high-technology corridor of Sydney's north-west and in close proximity to Macquarie Park and its surrounding industries, Macquarie's location has been crucial in its development as a relatively research intensive university. The university is straddled between the suburbs of North Ryde and the later developed technology and industry focused Macquarie Park; however, the campus has its own postcode, 2109. The M2 Motorway runs parallel to the northern boundary of the campus and is accessible to traffic from the university.
