NeW Space is a $95 million landmark education precinct under development by the University of Newcastle in the heart of Newcastle's CBD. NeW Space will harness the latest in technology and innovation in teaching and learning to deliver a world-class student experience by engaging students in new and exciting ways.
NeW Space will provide a unique platform for our staff to develop and test innovative ideas using new and emerging technologies. It will will be a resource for the whole University community, across different disciplinary and knowledge fields
This precinct will offer University-supported activities across all faculties including:
- business and law programs
- digital library services and information commons
- collaborative learning and research spaces
- work integrated learning
- facilities for industry, professional and community engagement
- social spaces.
Developed as a technology-rich and engaging demonstrator site, NeW Space will allow the University to create and pilot education models and pedagogy.
During 2013, the University's NeW Space capital project team will select and purchase the preferred site in Newcastle city, complete the final design and oversee the procurement and contracting of suppliers. It is anticipated that construction of the technology-enabled Precinct will commence in 2014, with the state-of the-art virtual and physical teaching and learning facilities available to students and the community from 2017.
