NeW Space is a $95 million landmark education precinct under development by the University of Newcastle on the corner of Auckland and Hunter streets, in
the heart of Newcastle's CBD.
An iconic landmark in this great city, NeW Space is designed to be a place that invites the city and the community into the building, the University and
onto the city campus through social spaces, connecting pathways and active student learning spaces that are right on the street front.
10 level vertical campus will be a place for creative exchange, for meeting, for enhancing the business of the city as well as a great place for
students and academics to learn and research. The contemporary and confident design strives to capture the University's global outlook and aspirations.
NeW Space is focused on a sustainable design and is targeting 5-star Green Star rating.
Main construction will start in early 2015 and the first students will commence at the start of the 2017 academic year. NeW Space is jointly funded by
the Australian Government through the Education Investment Fund, the New South Wales State Government through the Hunter Infrastructure and Investment
Fund, and the University of Newcastle.
