Camperdown, University of Sydney, Wesley College

Wesley College is a residential college on the University of Sydney campus, in the inner city suburb of Camperdown. The main wing was designed by Byera Hadley and built Edwardian Gothic architectural style and opened in 1917 as a College of the Methodist Church in Australia. The Callaghan Wing was completed in 1922, the Cecil Purser Wing designed by Alan Dwyer in 1943 and Brewster Murray added the Wylie Wing in 1960. Further extensions were added in 1965 when Fowell Mansfield & Maclurcan increased the capacity of the Chapel and in 1969 when the same firm designed the Tutors Wing. It became a College of the Uniting Church in 1977.

  1. I cannot see the modern extensions in the photo, so they must have carefully integrated the old and new architecture. Perfect!

  3. I am enjoying this trip to Sydney via your blog since, at 70, I don't think I'll get back. My two days there, some 20 years ago, pre cruise, weren't enough for ample sightseeing.
