UC Sporting Commons
The University of Canberra's new $16 million Sporting Commons, including new headquarters for the University of Canberra Brumbies, ACTSport and sports studies teaching and research facilities was officially opened by Acting Chief Minister Andrew Barr on 17th July 2014.
The 3,300 square metre facility also includes three gymnasiums, medical/rehabilitation areas, plunge pools, a sauna, main oval and skills field, and a purpose-built bocce court for Special Olympics ACT. The ACT Sports Hall of Fame, UC Fit! and the UC Research Institute for Sport and Exercise (UC-RISE) will also call the building home.
The partnership between the ACT Government, the University of Canberra and ACT Sport would ensure Canberra is at the forefront of development and innovation in sport. The benefits of co-locating community and elite sport at the University of Canberra include linking students with the sports industry, enhanced learning and industry resources and building economies of scale through co-location.
University of Canberra Vice-Chancellor Professor Stephen Parker said the University is investing in sport for the region and the future.
"The completion of the Sporting Commons brings us a step closer to realising our goal of becoming Australia's leading sports university."
The centre will also offer and provide outreach opportunities for participation in sport and education to remote and rural communities in Southern NSW.
