West Park Expansion
A new campus at West Park
The University will build a new $48 million campus at West Park in the heart of Burnie. A development application has been approved by Burnie City Council and construction has commenced.
Based on extensive consultation with the community, this will include:
- World-class facilities
- Easy pedestrian access options with public transport and ample car parking available
- A focus on enabling industry and community use of the site, with sensitivity to the natural environment
The first stage of this development is complete, in the shape of student accommodation, teaching facilities in the old Domestic Arts Building and the iconic Makers’ Workshop.
