The University of Notre Dame Australia yesterday (November 2, 2017) purchased the vacant site next to its Broadway campus in Sydney, paving the way for long term growth.

Purchased at auction at a cost of $21 million, the 520 sqm site, – located at 142-152 Broadway, Chippendale – is ideally located within the University’s Campus.

Vice Chancellor Professor Celia Hammond said that “the acquisition of this site is an exciting step towards expanding The University of Notre Dame Australia’s presence within Sydney’s premier educational precinct. The University will develop this site to further its strategic goal of providing students and staff with the highest quality teaching spaces and facilities.”

When developed, the building will be able to accommodate six floors and provide an additional area of approximately 3100m².

The new site will also increase connectivity amongst the University’s existing Broadway buildings, allowing for dual street access to Broadway Road and Grafton Lane and offering the potential for walkways to other buildings operated by the University.

Planning for the development of the new site is scheduled to commence in the new year.

The University of Notre Dame Australia opened its Sydney Campus in 2006 and currently has 5000 students enrolled in programs across its seven Schools.
