Impact on Campus

Campus Estate are constantly looking to improve campus facilities and grounds through routine maintenance, planned refurbishment, and new capital developments.

Where disruptions are expected, traffic and/or pedestrian management will be in place, spaces will be cordoned off and notice will be provided to users. Sometimes classes or group sessions may be relocated or postponed. Where classes or lectures are impacted, students and staff will be advised by the University's Timetabling team.

For impacts caused by the operations and maintenance team performing works in existing buildings on campus, visit the Campus Estate Service Portal (for UC staff only).

Description of works

Start Period

End Period

Building 3 Refurbishment

Access scaffolding will be erected (including external stairs and a materials hoist) across two (2) accessible car parks in Building 27. This will reduce worker traffic through Building 3 during the construction period.

During the project, the main switchboard in Building 3 will also be replaced. This will require a complete power shutdown to the Building for three (3) to four (4) days. Temporary power will be provided, however, this will only supply  essential services in the Building. These works will be scheduled over a weekend to minimise the impact to University operations.

Construction for these works commences in May 2018 and is scheduled to complete during Semester 2 2018.

Construction of the multi-story car park commenced early August 2017 and is expected to be completed late June 2018.

Impacts for the car park development works are initially minimal. However an extension to the existing Pantowora St will be undertaken by Transport Canberra and City Services to connect through to the new roads surrounding the University of Canberra Public Hospital. It is expected there will be some minor disruption to traffic along this road during this time.
