Foccusing on ‘form and function,’ the design has been completed by both Alumni students as well as Aspect Studios, Breathe Architecture, NMBW Architecture studio, Greenway Architects, Glas Urban and Architects EAT.

The design includes nine existing buildings, all of which will undergo extensive alterations and additions as well as the construction of a ‘new arts and cultural building.’

The sight level will be lowered, in order to eliminate the uneven terrain. This in turn will improve accessibility to the student grounds as well as exposing the facade of the old 1939 Frank Tate Building.The project will include a series of student spaces, mixed use retail, food and beverage as well as contemporary study spaces.

Melbourne university received a total of 40 applications for the design of the new student precinct, with five being invited to present their conceptual designs to the board.
The new precinct will foster growth in and around the university as well as embracing the changing role and experience of education, research and community engagement.
