Precinct Plan

The University of Tasmania’s Inveresk campus will be part of a vibrant, city-connected precinct with dense activity concentrated along a central 'spine'. Inveresk is a mixed-use precinct with unique historical, cultural, educational and sporting features to enjoy.

Design principles identified through community feedback:

  • A walkable precinct with an activated spine, well connected across the river  
  • Tasmanian Aboriginal presence embedded  
  • Accessible and inclusive  
  • Consideration of old and new, inhabiting an industrial landscape  
  • Distinctive frontages with energised landscapes to work, study, play or live  
  • Gateway to the city  
  • Vibrant student village atmosphere

Inveresk Precinct Plan

A staged approach to construction will maximise the economic benefit to Tasmania and support local industry.

  • Stage One: the library and student experience building. Construction is expected to start in the first half of 2020, with the building ready for students by the end of 2021. This stage will also include the footbridge across the North Esk.
  • Stage Two: the learning and teaching building, which is expected to be completed by early 2023.
  • Stage Three: the health, science and research building, which is expected to be completed by early 2024.
  • Additional works will see the renovation of existing university buildings and the development of landscaping, active recreation and community spaces in and around the precinct.
