Inveresk Campus

A new campus at Inveresk

The University is building a new $260 million campus at Inveresk in the heart of Launceston. Features include:

  • Easy pedestrian, bike and public transport access, high visibility and integration with community and industry
  • A new pedestrian and cycle bridge will increase accessibility
  • Student hubs and innovation spaces, purpose-built for effective teaching and learning
  • State-of-art research facilities, including a new Institute of Applied Science and Design

The newly designed facilities will complement the School of Architecture and Design, the School of Creative Arts and the 120-bed student accommodation development already at the site.

The Australian Maritime College will remain at the Newnham Campus as the cornerstone of an engineering, design and manufacturing precinct.

The story so far:

  • Master plan concept developed and community engagement commenced
