The Canberra City campus will be a world-class research, education and innovation campus located in the middle of Canberra’s research and innovation corridor in the heart of Canberra. It will further grow the city’s reputation as Australia’s education and innovation capital by leveraging Canberra’s existing research, technology and government ecosystem.

In anticipation for construction to commence, the team at UNSW Canberra have commenced operations from the new UNSW Canberra City location, which is currently located at CIT Reid, fostering valuable connections with Defence, industry and academia.

The new campus will be located on approximately 8 hectares of land either side of Constitution Avenue in Reid and Parkes. CIT Reid is set to be moved to a new flagship facility based in Woden.

The UNSW Canberra City campus will establish education and research facilities, collaborative industry activities, and facilities to support the campus population, such as parking, student accommodation, student services, and retail.

The new campus is a five-minute walk from the CBD, neighbouring some of Canberra’s key institutions such as the ANU, CSIRO, Australian Defence Force Academy and the Defence and intelligence headquarters.

Upon completion, the UNSW Canberra City campus will welcome students and is expected to create more than 2,000 jobs locally, including opportunities for local businesses including on-site restaurants and cafes.
