Campus Management

Mid Campus Precinct

The Mid Campus Precinct stretches from the Reid Library to the north and Myers Street to the south, with links from the river through to Broadway.

It is proposed that the park landscape character of the Crawley Campus be retained and enhanced by creating permanent green reserves; conserving heritage landscapes; and enhancing a clear hierarchy of colonnaded or landscaped pedestrian spines around inner courtyards. A major new building on the southern edge of James Oval should have similar architectural prominence on campus as Winthrop Hall and Reid Library.

A site on Fairway has been identified for the new Indian Ocean Marine Research Centre (IOMRC). There are also sites for new Engineering buildings on Fairway to replace and expand the current facility. Consideration for the development of a new building over the Reid Library car park could provide a central location for the University Club and UWA Sports.

Moving from a ‘University in a park’ to a ‘University in a town’ approach to planning west of the campus to Broadway is considered desirable. It is proposed to extend courtyard structure and landscape principles from Crawley campus west to Crawley village through to Broadway and develop an urban landscape character for the University through to Broadway.
