UOW's Estate Strategy

UOW's Estate Strategy

Due to Covid-19 UOW Facilities Management Division (FMD) will be reviewing the works as outlined in the UOW 2016-2036 Master Plan.

The previous Masterplan does not reference or link other campuses and is not in alignment with the 2020-2025 Strategic Plan.

The Facilities Management Division is working on a revised Masterplan that considers how students will learn in the future.

A forward vision for facilities to connect a global network of learning.

Please reach out to the team at FMD if you have any questions, queriers or concerns via the shared email: estate-strategy@uow.edu.au

What is the Campus Master Plan?

The UOW Wollongong Campus Master Plan creates a vision and framework to guide the physical development of the Wollongong campus up to 2036.

This framework was 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.

McKinnon Walker Trust Report 2017

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.

The key recommendations:

  • Student voice
  • Communication of success
  • Student-centric architecture and design
  • Smart and engaging campus life
  • Accessible and sustainable campus
  • Entrepreneurial spirit
