The University of Western Australia has partnered with RAC to launch a new multi-mode transport service – making it the first university in WA to offer a broad range of convenient and environmentally friendly ways to get around campus.
In November 2018, the City of Perth granted development approval for Forrest Hall (stage 2), with UWA Senate approving the progression of the project in March 2019. The new stage 2 building will be a similar size and complement the existing Forrest Hall development, and is expected to be completed by mid-to-late 2021.
The UniPark office will close at 1pm on Wednesday 18 December 2019 and re-open on Monday 6 January 2020. Any urgent parking enquiries during the University’s shutdown period should be directed to the Security Office.
Works to replace the brick walls around the roof of Human Movement Labs with aluminium louvres are scheduled to commence on Monday 14 October. Scaffolding will be set up on the east side of the building, and a safety fence erected on the east and north side, which will take up some space in the pool area. Entrance from the rear of the building and the car park will be maintained, however, there will be trucks in Car park 33 that will restrict access at times.
The Vice-Chancellor recently announced that UWA campuses will be energy carbon neutral by 2025. This is a key objective addressing the Grand Challenges identified in the Strategic Plan 2020-25 and will elevate UWA to one of the leaders in aiming to achieve carbon neutrality within Australia and particularly within Western Australia.
The University is developing a series of exciting initiatives aimed at:
Construction of the new Bilya Marlee building (meaning river of the swan) is progressing well. The lower ground floor slab, columns and stairs to the upper ground level have been poured.
This new purpose-built facility will be a key component within the southern precinct of the campus, and will greatly improve the current student experience for the School of Indigenous Studies, the Centre for Aboriginal Medical and Dental Health and POCHE Centre for Indigenous Health.
What will be affected: Electrical power supply to Crawley Campus (full site power outage)
Where: Crawley Campus – all areas
Why: Western Power Critical HV Maintenance and to increase electrical supply redundancy in Ring D. This planned power outage is unavoidable and the University is providing advanced notice to all campus users
What may be experienced: Power loss to the ring as per the below schedule. Where an on-site generator is connected only essential power will be supplied.
Site preparations are underway for our new Indigenous Studies building, located within the southern precinct of the campus.
The Indigenous Studies building will provide an exciting working and learning environment for students and staff; and an inviting entrance for the Crawley campus from Hackett Drive.
This new purpose-built facility will be a key component within the southern precinct of the campus, and will greatly improve the current student experience for the School of Indigenous Studies and the Centre for Aboriginal Medical and Dental Health.
If you have applied for and received a UWA parking permit, please ensure the permit is affixed to the left-hand side of your vehicle windscreen before Friday 22 February to avoid being issued an infringement.
