Building Works Begin on Ground Floor and Basement at Flinders St


Those of you who have been on campus this week will notice that the builders have arrived and today energy has really cranked up.

As a result the building work, the ground floor from the lifts back and the basement will be closed to all staff and students. Tables and chairs from the student recreation area will be distributed in a range of areas across the campus.

For the construction period, students will be permitted to use the kitchen on level 1 to heat food etc, however, this area will remain a BYO everything area. Any food containers and utensils will be removed from the sink.



Later this week the entire area (ground floor (from the lifts back) and basement) will be sealed off, so too will the back lift. The lift system will be set only to operate for the builders between level G and basement. During our building period please only use the lifts at the front of the campus and the back stairwell to level 1.

If you have any concerns or feedback in relation to these moves please contact Campus Director directly either by email ( or mobile 0478 302 083.

IMPORTANT: Please ensure that you empty your lockers no later than Friday 6th December to avoid

losing your belongings.
