Our Campus Improvement Program is transforming our infrastructure for generations of students and staff, while maintaining our heritage and history.
Our campuses are evolving to meet the changing needs of 21st century students, researchers and teaching staff and provide cultural, recreational, sporting and retail spaces to the wider community.
To deliver upon our vision to continually improve, renew and restore our beautiful and unique campuses, we're investing in an ongoing Campus Improvement Program that will run until 2020.
The program provides:
A key focus of the University’s next era of strategic growth is western Sydney.
Building on our already strong presence with the foundation disciplines of medicine and dentistry and our substantial research activity at Westmead, we will continue to work with the NSW Government and all of our partners in the precinct to develop, by 2030, a genuinely multidisciplinary campus with 6000 students – an increase of 4800 students from our current state – and a commensurate increase in our academic capacity.
We will invest more than $50 million in infrastructure alone by 2020, with a long-range financing target of around $500 million over the next 15 years.

The Life, Earth and Environmental Sciences (LEES1) Building co-locates teaching, research and faculty accommodation for the School of Life and Environmental Sciences. The building provides approximately 10,000 m2 of new research and teaching space, including:
This new scientific research and teaching facility builds upon the University's objective to upgrade and modernise teaching and research facilities, as part of its ongoing commitment to providing world-renowned education. The LEES1 Building will place 'science on display' at the University's front door through a highly transparent facade facing City Road.
The new Regiment student accommodation facility and mixed-use development will provide a communal space for students, teachers and the surrounding community that encourages collaborative learning.
It will be an eight-storey building that comprises student accommodation and mixed use educational/teaching spaces. The site will replace the old Regiment building and Darlington Centre.
The Regiment Mixed-Use Redevelopment will front onto the junction of City and Darlington roads, and will step down from eight to five storeys towards the east boundary with the Institute Building. The development will include:
This initiative aims to enhance students' campus life by providing shared experiences and learning spaces and encouraging students and staff to meet, collaborate and socialise. The mixed-use development will also promote greater use of existing and new University educational facilities.

The University is planning an exciting new facility – the Susan Wakil Health Building – to be located on our Camperdown Campus in our health precinct.
The building will be a multidisciplinary facility that will co-locate the faculties of nursing and midwifery (currently located at Mallett Street) and health sciences (currently located at the Cumberland Campus) and the Central Clinical School from Sydney Medical School (currently located at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital).
The building will provide shared, innovative clinical simulation teaching spaces, formal and informal learning functions and contemporary research facilities that will strengthen the University's position in health, research and teaching. Additionally, the project will encompass a multi-service clinic that will serve a number of research, teaching, industry partnering and community outreach functions.
Located on the site of the existing Blackburn and Bosch group of buildings and adjacent to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, the 23,000m2 Susan Wakil Health Building will provide a new home on the Camperdown Campus for health-related teaching and learning.
See below a list of important documents for this building project and copies of them. To enquire about the development or to make a complaint, please contact us by email at Susanwakilbuilding@laingorourke.com.au.
