The UOW Wollongong Campus Master Plan creates a vision and framework to guide the physical development of the Wollongong campus over the next 20 years.
This framework has been defined through consultation with University of Wollongong staff, students, government and industry partners and the local Wollongong community, reflection on technical studies and best practice examples of universities throughout the world.
The Master Plan builds on the high-quality landscape and public realm of the existing campus while improving its relationship to the surrounding community and connections to Wollongong and the region.

UOW have engaged a multidisciplinary team of consultants led by campus master planners, MGS Architects.
Some 80,000m2 will be required on campus to meet core academic needs.
Consultation with students, staff, government and the wider community formed an important part of the planning process.
This report presents key findings and recommendations compiled by those participating in the McKinnon Walker Study Tour: an international study tour by UOW students to examine better practice examples of how the built environment and physical resources of a University strongly influence student life and their academic experience.
Mirroring the Master Plan itself, this report is a guiding document that articulates our vision and recommendations for the future, but also allows flexibility to respond to future opportunities and challenges.
