Australian Synchrotron guesthouse


Please note: The Australian Synchrotron Guesthouse will be closed for maintenance from Monday 13May to Sunday 19May.

We will re-open Monday 20 May.


We are currently undertaking significant excavation and construction work at the Australian Synchrotron facility. The timeline for project completion is now slated for end of April 2024.

As this work has severely impacted pedestrian access to the guesthouse, we have conducted a review of our safety protocols. To ensure all personnel can safely and effectively navigate site, we are restricting guesthouse stays to only those guests participating in beamtime, or onsite ANSTO meetings.

We are therefore unable to offer accommodation to friends and family members during this time. Please contact the ANSTO Victoria User Office for further information.


The Australian Synchrotron has an on-site guesthouse that is available for all users and guests. Bookings can be made by filling out the Accommodation Application Form below and emailing the form to the User Office. The User Office does not accept bookings by phone. By downloading and submitting this application you are agreeing to the terms and conditions.

To check availability for a group booking at the guesthouse, please email the User Office
