Facts & figures
This state-of-the-art new building will bring together multiple health disciplines to work out of the same precinct. Working alongside each other in this new facility will create unique inter-professional learning programs and multi-disciplinary research opportunities. It will place our students and staff at the forefront of health innovation, learning and policy.
This building has been designed to be a place of innovation, learning and socialisation. Spread out over 8 floors with views across the city, its facilities include:
A focus on activity and movement, social equity and the utilisation of the Wingara Mura design principles have been key priorities in the building’s design, with features such as the Yooroang Garang academic space (a dedicated space for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to connect and work together), gender neutral facilities and the Upper Wakil Garden (a place of respite at the heart of the building) all playing a part.
Located on our Camperdown/Darlington campus, students and researchers will be able to leverage the benefits of the proximity of our location adjacent to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and other leading medical institutions.
From 2021, all students starting in any of our degree programs will be located on our Camperdown/Darlington campus. Sydney Nursing School and the Sydney School of Health Sciences will move from the current Mallet St building and Cumberland campus respectively, along with the Central Clinical School and components of the Faculty of Medicine and Health.
