UTS Central

The UTS Central Project represents a significant component of the broader, billion-dollar-plus UTS City Campus Master Plan.

Located on Broadway, the project will redefine the Broadway campus, create additional connections within the campus and further enhance the student experience. It will significantly support the university’s long-term strategic plan including significant growth in research while positively contribute to the urban quality of the precinct.

The first phase of the project will see the redevelopment of Building 2 (located on the corner of Jones St and Broadway). The podium levels of the building will accommodate a new UTS Library, scholarly reading room, learning commons, collaborative classrooms and theatres, and Student Services hub/counter, while a nine-level tower above the podium will house additional research spaces. Work commenced in mid-November 2016 with the demolition of the existing Building 2 on Broadway, with construction getting underway in early 2017. The building is targeting completion in 2019.

A second phase of the project proposes an extension to the Building 1 (Tower) podium to re-define the main entrance to UTS as well as create enhanced public and informal learning spaces. Timeframes are yet to be determined.
