Southern campus transformation

Creating a future southern campus in the city

We want to hear what you think about our plans for our future southern campus.

We aspire to a southern campus in the city of Hobart that is more accessible, with a single heart, where we are more connected to our partners and each other -  a vibrant, contemporary campus which blends university and city life. 

Our preliminary urban design framework and masterplan sets out our initial thinking about how we could do this by working together. We invite you to read our plans and help us to refine them by letting us know what you think.

From our conversations with our students, staff and communities, we have drawn together all of the insights we’ve received since we began this conversation in 2019.

From this listening and learning, we have developed design principles and strategies to guide our planning, and a draft plan so we can see what it would mean for the University to become part of the fabric of the city.

You can read the full preliminary urban design framework and masterplan in the Flipping Book above, or download a copy by clicking the download arrow icon next to the printer icon.

We want to use this plan to test what we have heard, and see if the current thinking about the future of our campus reflects, preserves and enhances the values that are important to people.

This plan is not the end of a process. It is the start of an important conversation about what we want our future to be.

It is our initial thinking, and we look forward to the plan evolving and developing as people share their feedback.
