After exiting the turnstiles at the station, turn left and take the lift or escalator up to street level. Walk toward the university campus along University Avenue to reach the Hearing Hub. You will pass the Cochlear building on your left. The Hearing Hub will be just ahead on your right.

Visitors may park anywhere in the middle section of Upper B2. In the unlikely event these spots are full, please park in the spaces around the perimeter. Please avoid using the tandem parking spaces that are designed to accommodate two cars, as you may be blocked in.

Follow the signs to the lifts, which are located down the ramp on the Lower B2 level.

Disabled parking is available to any visitor whose vehicle displays both an Australian Disability Parking Permit and a Mobility Parking Scheme (MPS) permit.

Checking in for an appointment at NAL

When you arrive at the Australian Hearing Hub, take the lift to Level 4.  There is a building concierge on the ground floor opposite the lifts, but they are there to provide general assistance only, not to check in visitors.

When you exit the lift on Level 4, walk directly across the corridor to the glass door.  Follow the instructions on the screen to check in.  Please remain in the foyer until your audiologist comes  to meet you.
