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

An Urban Design Framework (“UDF”) has been developed to define the vision for the future of the campus, how it links people and activities within a shared precinct and through to the city.

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 currently underway, with the building ready for students by the end of 2021. This stage will also include the footbridge across the North Esk, scheduled for completion at the end of 2020, and a new northern car park to be completed early 2021.
  • Stage Two: the learning and teaching building, which is expected to be completed by early 2023. This stage also includes the Urban Realm outdoor spaces for University and community use, and redevelopment of exisiting buldings at Inveresk.
  • Stage Three: the health, science and research building, which is expected to be completed by early 2024.
