In 2011 the University secured ownership of Domain House, the original home of the University.
The $3.5 million Domain House refurbishment project saw conservation works carried out to the overall building fabric, refurbishment of the Great Hall, floor repairs, replacement of damaged and deteriorated external stonework and replacement and repair of roofing. Work to reinstate plaster wall linings was also undertaken.
The works were completed in March 2015.
Since acquiring the Domain site the University has also:
- developed an Urban Design Framework and a map for future programs
- refurbished the former Electrical Engineering Building for Nursing and Midwifery.
