About the Inveresk Library

The University of Tasmania’s Inveresk Library has opened for students and the greater Launceston community. The $23 million development is the first new building to be brought to life at Inveresk through the Northern Transformation Program, funded through the Launceston City Deal, with contributions from the Australian and Tasmanian Governments, City of Launceston and the University.
The University’s transformation towards city-based campuses will enable more people to access learning opportunities throughout all stages of life. The Library will be central to the vitality of Launceston and the wider region, as the vibrant heart of the campus.

The building was designed by John Wardle Architects with input from over 150 individuals including students, staff and the community as part of a co-design process providing feedback on the vision for Inveresk, building design and functionality.
Set over three levels, the Library offers group and quiet study spaces, digital and print collections and resources, meeting spaces and classrooms, featured artworks and cultural objects including the Riawunna collection, a student kitchenette and parenting room and  a café due to open in 2023.
Sustainability is a key feature of the design, with recycled gas pipelines used for the building’s foundations, structural use of Tasmanian timber, low carbon concrete and solar initiatives to maximise energy efficiency.

Library services will remain available across Newnham and Inveresk locations to support students during the University’s transition to Inveresk, with the overall campus development which includes a further two buildings scheduled for full completion in 2024.
