Carslaw Building

Carslaw Building The University of Sydney's Carslaw Building is situated on the south-east side of the central campus, near the northern end of the footbridge crossing City Road from the Wentworth Building. Other nearby buildings include the Eastern Avenue auditorium and lecture-theatre complex, the Madsen Building (housing the School of GeoSciences) and the School of Chemistry Building.

The Carslaw Building dates from the early 1960s, and is named after the eminent mathematician Horatio Scott Carslaw (1870-1954), once Professor of Mathematics in the University. An addition to the building known as the Carslaw Extension was opened in late 1993.
