Green Light for Central Coast Campus
The University of Newcastle has received the green light from the NSW Government to build a new $58 million campus on the Central Coast. The campus will be located in Gosford, on the former Mitre 10 building site at 305 Mann Street. It is expected to open in 2025 and will offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses and research facilities.
Attracting Global Talent
The new campus is part of the University’s commitment to the Central Coast region. It is expected to create over 1,000 jobs during construction and 200 ongoing jobs once it is open. It will also boost the local economy by attracting students and researchers from across the region and the world.
Sustainable and environmentally friendly
The campus has been designed to be a sustainable and environmentally friendly development. It will include a number of features to reduce energy consumption and water usage, such as solar panels and rainwater harvesting.
Investment in the future of the Central Coast
The University of Newcastle Vice-Chancellor, Alex Zelinsky AO, said the new campus was an important investment in the future of the Central Coast. “This campus will provide a world-class education and research environment for students and researchers from the region,” he said. “It will also help to drive economic growth and create jobs.”
Member for Gosford, Liesl Tesch MP, welcomed the announcement of the new campus. “This is a great day for the Central Coast,” she said. “The new campus will provide a much-needed boost to our local economy and education sector.”
