Waimarie education block now open

Waimarie's education block opened for business on Monday 17 July, hosting its first lectures at 9am.

The construction project for our flagship science facility was officially launched at a ground-breaking ceremony at the construction site in February 2021. 

The new building, due for completion in mid-2023, will be a fit-for-future learning and research facility located within a bio-diverse park-like environment. 

The new science facilities will comprise: 

  • Modern, well-lit, climate-controlled learning areas, office workspace and collaboration spaces designed to suit the needs of students, staff, postgraduate researchers and our industry partners 
  • State-of-the-art research laboratories and equipment 
  • Contemporary teaching spaces 
  • Adjustable meeting and conference zones 
  • Multi-use social spaces 
  • Café and heat-and-eat area 
  • Purpose-built areas for specialist research activities. 

In line with the University’s sustainable infrastructure goals, the new building will have minimal environmental impact, featuring roof- and wall-mounted solar arrays, a ground-sourced heating/cooling system and a rainwater-fed toilet flushing system.

Waimarie teaching block opened July 2023
