Learning space development

Transforming our student experience through flexible, integrated and partnered learning environments is a key strategic focus area that ensures our campuses include vibrant spaces for on-campus learning, community engagement and student life.

UQ’s rolling program of learning space projects is centred on the creation of flexible multi-functional spaces. 

Governed by the Learning Space Sub-Committee, each initiative will include engagement with academic staff and students, following distinct design principles and post-occupancy evaluation, building on our knowledge and ability to create innovative and effective learning environments.

Learning space initiatives

The new ModWest teaching facility (meaning modular construction and west of the campus) is located near the Art Museum, St Lucia. It opened in August 2020 and houses large collaborative teaching, learning and informal study spaces. The rooms are available to all schools for classes or events.

A number of other initiatives have also been completed or are in progress. More information will be posted on this web page soon.
