NSW Government announces $18M for University of Newcastle Gosford campus

It's been a long time coming but persistence has paid off on the part of CCBR and the Gosford Erina Business Chamber with the NSW Government announcing a commitment of $18 million for a new University campus in Mann Street, Gosford.

Saturday morning of the long weekend saw NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet MP, NSW Treasurer Matt Kean, Minister for Infrastructure, Cities and Active Transport Rob Stokes and Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch in Gosford to make the announcement.

The UON Gosford Campus will be a multi-faculty academic and innovation facility and will cut the numbers of students forced to leave the Central Coast to study at university.

The new campus will be developed on the 4,650 square metre site at 299-309 Mann St, Gosford.

Design work has begun and the new facility is expected to be completed in 2025.

UON Vice-Chancellor Professor Alex Zelinsky AO who was present for the announcement said, “We are delighted to partner with the Australian and NSW governments to realise our vision of creating a new health and business innovation campus in the heart of Gosford.”

“We expect to build to more than 900 students studying at the Gosford campus within its first decade of operation, with identified courses in allied health, bioscience, digital transformation, law, business and innovation. 

In partnership with the Federal and State governments we see an incredible opportunity to activate the Central Coast Education and Employment Precinct and further revitalise the Gosford CBD,” he said.
