Honeysuckle Precinct

The Honeysuckle precinct is located within our Newcastle City campus and is part of the University's 10-year Master Plan to deliver a mix of innovative research and education spaces, places to collaborate with industry and community, and accommodation for students to enjoy the best of living and working in the heart of the city.

The first building in the Honeysuckle precinct, Q Building, is situated on the corner of Worth Place and Honeysuckle Drive. Q is our new creative and entrepreneurial hub in the city and provides state-of-the-art facilities for the School of Creative Industries (SOCI) and Integrated Innovation Network (I2N).

The expanded facilities for SOCI at Honeysuckle offer purpose-built production, music, animation, design, sound and arts studios and support students to become leaders in their fields. The new flagship innovation hub at Q enables the University, through I2N, to promote enterprise skill development in students, researchers and industry to solve real-world problems by translating knowledge and research into new technologies and products.

Students studying at Q Building will have access to a wide range of services and support provided by the University. This includes individual and collaborative study spaces, recreational spaces and activities, student kitchen, parenting room and access to a bike hub and end of trip facilities.

Q Building is set to welcome students in semester 2, 2021.
