Planning for the University's future

ANU will spend 2018 focusing on its future by developing a refreshed Master Plan for its Acton campus. Aligning with the ANU Strategic Plan 2021, while also looking further forward to 2038, the ANU Acton Master Plan will deliver a clear plan to deliver excellence across the campus’ built environment into the future.

The Master Plan will provide a spatial framework to guide decision making across the campus, with a focus on improving the quality of the University’s physical assets and campus experience, consistent with the University’s culture of excellence in everything that it does. An integrated design team, led by global built environment consultancy Arup, will work with the ANU community during 2018 to develop the ANU Acton Master Plan.

ANU Vice-Chancellor, Professor Brian Schmidt, has challenged the Master Plan team and the campus community to ‘think big’ when it comes to the campus’ future. This big thinking includes addressing the global challenges of digital disruption, energy generation and consumption, urbanisation and transportation. The changing face of academia and the future needs of students and academics will also be explored during the master planning process. Energy and heritage will be specific areas of study during the process, with an Energy Master Plan and Heritage Master Plan key outputs of the master planning process.
