Transforming our campuses

Supporting education and research excellence

Our Campus Improvement Program is transforming our infrastructure for generations of students and staff, while maintaining our heritage and history.

Our campuses are evolving to meet the changing needs of 21st century students, researchers and teaching staff and provide cultural, recreational, sporting and retail spaces to the wider community.

Key transformation projects

A key focus of the University’s next era of strategic growth is Western Sydney.

Building on our already strong presence with the foundation disciplines of medicine and dentistry and our substantial research activity at Westmead, we will continue to work with the NSW Government and all of our partners in the precinct to develop, by 2030, a genuinely multidisciplinary campus with 6000 students – an increase of 4800 students from our current state – and a commensurate increase in our academic capacity.

The Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies precinct redevelopment will deliver the systematic refurbishment and redevelopment of the existing Engineering precinct to provide world-class teaching, learning and research facilities over the next 10 years. This project will include reinvigorating the faculty’s infrastructure.

A dedicated project team has been established to undertake engaging and continuous consultation with stakeholders. This will determine the principles and ideas for the redevelopment and will ensure that the best thinking is applied to this site.

The Engineering and Technology Precinct (ETP) new building has placed sustainability at the heart of its design. The new building has been designed to include energy efficient lighting, improved indoor air quality features, a solar photovoltaic system on the roof, promotion of sustainable transport, and surface heat reduction conscious landscape design.

The new ETP building has been awarded a 4 Star Green Star- Design & As Built v1.2 Design Review Certified Rating, which represents Best Practice in sustainable design.

The ETP building will apply for a 4 Star Green Star As-Built certification rating following Completion. You can learn more about Green Star ratings at the Green Building Council Australia website.
