UNSW Canberra is reimagining the City’s east

The UNSW Canberra City campus will rejuvenate and transform the City's east.

UNSW Canberra has a proud history, partnering with Defence in Canberra for over 50 years. UNSW Canberra City will build on UNSW Canberra’s achievements, by creating a world class environment within Canberra’s parliamentary triangle.

The campus environment will provide a sense of place and pride in Canberra and will have an outstanding set of connected places, physical and digital. Students, staff, alumni, members of the local community, and partners from the defence and security community located adjacent to the campus, will come together to network, innovate, transform, learn and contribute to society.

Our urban design focuses on revitalising Constitution Avenue a landscape design that is beautiful, sustainable and enhances the local character of the precinct. The campus and buildings will be designed to grow with Canberra including a range of options to further enhance the location experience and long-term growth.

Key considerations

  • A new and improved community experience in the city’s east
  • Local and national industry participation
  • Urban and landscape design that will grow with Canberra
  • Partnering with other business and academic organisations on their existing site to establish shared learning spaces
  • Consultation with key stakeholders, to establish a clear vision for future developments
