UTS Central will be a vibrant student hub and faculty space in the heart of the Broadway precinct, adding to the diverse array of learning, teaching and research facilities at UTS. It will be home to the Library, Reading Room, a student centre, food court, informal learning commons and a range of teaching spaces, including a Super Lab and three large collaborative theatres. It will also accommodate the Faculty of Law and research facilities for the Faculty of Engineering and IT.
Located next to the UTS Tower, the 17-storey glass-encased building will contribute significantly to the amenity of the local area and the streetscape along the southern gateway to Sydney’s CBD, while delivering another iconic landmark building to the UTS campus.
UTS Central is the final significant capital development project to be delivered as part of the billion-dollar-plus UTS City Campus Master Plan. Work commenced in mid-November 2016 with the demolition of the former Building 2. Construction got underway in early 2017 and is on schedule and on budget for construction completion in mid-2019.
