The Following Information has been provided by Sydney University:

The University of Sydney’s Draft Campus 2020 Masterplan envisions a revolutionised and reinvigorated University; providing innovative spaces for learning and teaching, a forward-thinking approach to sustainability, and an inviting and accessible space for local residents and the wider community.

The University invites members of the local community to hear more about the Draft Campus 2020 Masterplan by attending an information and feedback session on Saturday 23 August. You will also have the opportunity to take a tour of public domain improvement works, innovative water and energy-saving green buildings, improved pedestrian and cycling links and areas for conservation throughout the University.

Community comments on the draft masterplan are important to the University and it is seeking your feedback and suggestions to assist it in finalising the Draft Campus 2020 Masterplan.

The community session is focused on the overall draft masterplan. The planning for specific University precincts is in its very early stages and the University will consult with the community on these as it develops its ideas in more detail.

Schedule of events – Saturday 23 August 2008

Drop- in session – drop in any time between 12pm and 4pm at the Holme Building, Science Road, The University of Sydney (next to the Footbridge Theatre). You will be able to view information on the draft masterplan and talk through details with members of the project team.

Tours – meet at the Shepherd Street Boardwalk, near the Abercrombie Street entrance, at 1pm and 3pm. Places are limited and we encourage you to book before the day.

To book a place on the tour, or for more information, please contact Lauren at Elton Consulting on 93872600 or email

The University realises that not everyone will be able to make the event, so it is currently developing a website containing clear information on the draft masterplan and a feedback function. You can email to be advised when the website goes live.

The specific areas of the masterplan where the University is seeking input from the community include:

  • How the University can best work with the  community to inform, and consult on the development of the masterplan and the renewal activities on campus
  • How we can limit any impacts of works on the local community e.g. traffic, site clearing and construction
  • The key features you would like to see in our campus of the future including:
    • Environmental sustainability initiatives
    • Building design and quality
    • Open space.
  • How you currently use the University’s facilities and grounds
  • How you would like to use the University’s facilities and grounds in the future.
