UON’s new high-tech Gosford campus given green light
The NSW Government has formally approved the $58 million University of Newcastle Central Coast Campus, which will be built on the site of the former Mitre 10 building at 305 Mann Street, Gosford.
University of Newcastle Vice-Chancellor Alex Zelinsky AO said, “We’re thrilled to have marked this milestone and have a formal green light for this critical project, which will allow students across the region to build their skills and earn a degree without leaving the Central Coast. We look forward to the project progressing as we work towards welcoming our first students in 2025.”
“Working together with the local community, business and industry, our new Central Coast Campus will act as an anchor in the reinvigoration of the region and will deliver a welcome injection into the local economy,” Professor Zelinsky said.
The new, three-storey campus will be close to Gosford Railway Station and bus terminal, and will include a small retail area, café and accessible open space for the community.
Construction is expected to begin on the new campus in late 2023 and it is expected to be up and running by mid-2025, with funding support from the Commonwealth and State Governments.
