Increasing the University of Newcastle’s physical presence in the Upper Hunter will go far to deliver on the University’s 2025 strategic vision:

  • It will service and support the economic transition of a resource intensive region driven by innovation.
  • It will attract new research funding and enable the delivery of new integrated research and training through short courses and the Global Impact Cluster doctoral training program.
  • It will bring us closer geographically to one of Australia’s most significant regions of economic activity for resources, energy and agriculture.
