Come and experience the new $63 million redevelopment of Flinders University Plaza and Student Hub. The design draws on a number of high-level findings by the engagement of students, teachers and staff which included creating student “owned” spaces for study, recreation and socialisation, teaching and learning facilities, student-facing services, food and beverage offerings and student support services including clubs, associations and religious centres.

In the university’s biggest redevelopment in nearly 50 years, the new plaza and student hub includes over 11,000m2 of enhanced facilities as well as an improved terraced plaza space designed to create a dynamic precinct for students. 

The Woods Bagot design creates a new ‘front door’ to the campus, significantly improving visual and movement connections through the plaza and activating the central core of the campus by drawing students into a contemporary education environment with a diversity of spaces designed for active learning.

The redevelopment includes a new four storey administration building with a sustainable rooftop garden, a new three storey enclosed mall, refurbishment of the existing Union building and refurbishment of one level of the library.

The newly designed plaza comprises a terraced amphitheatre for learning, socialising and relaxation and will host outdoor concerts and film nights for up to 2,000 people. 

It also features quiet study spaces, collaborative group lounges and conference facilities, new bars, a restaurant, which offers fine dining options and spectacular 180 degree views of the lake and ocean from the top floor of the hub, function centres, retail, as well as food and beverage outlets.

With a focus on student interaction, engagement and services, the Student Hub and Plaza offering a vibrant place to learn, connect and play.
