Getting here and getting around

Our main campus is located on Kent Street in Bentley, Perth, Western Australia. There are a number of easy, safe, affordable and environmentally friendly ways to get to and around campus.

Public transport

The bus station at Curtin Perth is one of the busiest in Perth, with seven different services stopping frequently during semester. The circle route, which runs between Perth’s universities, train stations and shopping centres, stops every 15 minutes between 6.30am and 6pm on weekdays. Some buses connect with train services that run to the outer metropolitan area.
