Campus Management

Facilities improvement program

The University is undertaking a facilities refurbishment program to deliver significant improvements to central teaching facilities and toilet/washroom amenities campus-wide.

The $13 million refurbishment program has been developed as a result of consultation and review with all areas of the University. Designed to improve the campus experience for students, staff and visitors, the significant upgrades will be delivered between August 2016 and February 2018.

Consultations will continue and briefings will be held with faculties and key stakeholders as Campus Management delivers the program of works.
