How can we create opportunities for our community with a vibrant and connected campus?

How can new technologies connect campuses and digital environments and  foster world-leading teaching and researching?

What will a university campus of the future look like?

The traditional bricks and mortar campus is evolving and as a leading university we must respond to transformative changes in our social, cultural and natural environment. These are occurring not only in the global education sector, but all around us.

We are privileged to have a beautiful campus on the lands of the Whadjuk Noongar people. Its future development must be sensitive to the innovative nature of our education and research, and the cultural richness of our diverse communities.

Ranked in the world’s top 1 per cent of academic institutions, our campuses provide facilities for students, scholars, staff and the broader community to connect and collaborate.

Over the past century, UWA has created a learning and teaching environment to meet the educational, research and employment needs and aspirations of these diverse groups. This has seen positive investment in buildings, infrastructure and resources, all guided by a series of successive masterplans.
