New $80m Learning Centre

Jeffrey Smart building

University of South Australia students will soon have access to a transformational $80 million Learning Centre currently under construction at the City West campus.

This cutting-edge facility will provide a diversity of learning spaces and support services in an environment of great equity and quality. The Learning Centre will enriched by integrated resources and state-of-the-art technologies, providing a strong framework for effective and memorable social, learning and teaching experiences.

In August of 2010 the University of South Australia secured $30 million from the Federal Government's Education Investment Fund towards the $95 million Participate@UniSA project, including a new Learning Centre valued at over $80m for the City West campus. Following an exciting archaeological excavation of the site in late 2011, main construction commenced January 2012, and the facility is scheduled for occupation early 2014.
