Successful precincts unite government, academia and business with collaboration and innovation at the forefront. UNSW Precincts aim is to deliver initiatives of significant societal impact through developing collaborative spaces to drive development in healthcare, innovation, education and research.

UNSW leads the strategic direction for collaboration with our partners for our active and emerging precincts.

Current Projects

UNSW has committed to a number of exciting precincts at varying levels of maturity from active, emerging and proposed, all which cross through health, innovation, education and research sectors.

The Randwick Health and Education Precinct is set to become the largest collocated health precinct in NSW. The Precinct spans Botany Street and brings together government, UNSW, four hospitals (Prince of Wales, Sydney Children’s Hospital, Royal Hospital for Women, Prince of Wales Private), preclinical facilities and nine institutes spanning neuroscience, mental health, cancer and other fields.

With construction currently underway the Precinct will position Sydney to compete at the forefront of health education, training and research internationally. This, in turn, will attract outstanding clinicians, health professionals and academics to drive better healthcare outcomes for patients and generate economic benefits for the community.

The Liverpool Health and Innovation Precinct is reimagining how health, education and research is undertaken individually and collaboratively to drive innovation in Liverpool. Anchored around the Liverpool Hospital, the Precinct will attract the industries and jobs that will drive the next wave of economic progress in the region.

UNSW has been a significant partner with Liverpool Hospital for 30 years and has committed a campus within the precinct zone. For more information visit Liverpool Innovation Precinct.

The Canberra City Campus seeks to establish a new Defence and Security Innovation Precinct, opening the door to new collaborative opportunities between government, global defence industry, R&D organisations, UNSW researchers, partners and students.

The Precinct is set to be led by the UNSW Defence Research Institute which aims to develop and deliver world-class defence and security capabilities to safeguard Australia. For more information go to Launch on Northbourne.

In an Australian first, the NUW Alliance (the University of Newcastle, UNSW Sydney and the University of Wollongong) and Western Sydney University will join forces to deliver a world-class higher education and research presence in Western Sydney.

The Multiversity will specialise in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and be part of the Aerotropolis precinct at Badgerys Creek. By leveraging the expertise of the four institutions, students, employees and the wider community will have unparalleled access to innovative teaching and research.
