Words by Nick Crockford

Stage two of UniSC's new Moreton Bay campus is taking shape – fast.

Construction of three new buildings at Petrie is well under way and due for completion later this year.

When finished facilities will include additional teaching and learning spaces, research laboratories, an event area, student gym and sports hall.

Also, a sports science centre, student hub and breakout spaces, outdoor areas and multi-storey car parking.

UniSC Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Helen Bartlett said the campus, currently with 4000 students, would play a key role in providing a skilled workforce.

“A solid pipeline of graduates attracts industry and prosperity to a region,” Professor Bartlett said.

“National and international companies are moving to the region and telling us they need skills and talent as soon as possible."

Professor Bartlett said businesses had also been invited co-locate with UniSC on the Moreton Bay campus at The Mill site.

Mayor Peter Flannery toured the construction site recently with council colleagues.

“The demand for our university is truly remarkable when you think this campus only opened to students in 2020 and will be opening Stage 2 this year,” he said.

“If you thought the sleek exterior and lighting of the foundation building were impressive, wait until you see the landscape design in these new teaching spaces and research laboratories.

“UniSC is redefining what a modern university campus should look and feel like, with a real focus on optimising the learning experience.”
