One Planet & Green Buildings
One Planet Campus
As the Campus develops to accommodate more students, as well as research and development partnerships, it is important that we are able to grow while also reducing our impact on the planet. Property project staff are working to incorporate One Planet principles into all projects, both new builds and refurbishments, by embedding sustainable design standards into the project process.

Australian Hearing Hub - 5 Star Green Star
A unique, purpose-designed facility to assist collaborative research into hearing and hearing related speech and language disorders. A 5 Star Green Star “Design Rating” was awarded by the Green Building Council of Australia in 2013, followed up by a 5 Star Green Star “As-Built Rating” in 2014.
The building design was inspired by the native parklands of the campus with an emphasis on environmental sustainability, light and connection.
