Friday 22 November marked the formal opening of Curtin University Midland Campus.

The Campus was officially opened by Federal Minister for Indigenous Australians, The Hon Ken Wyatt AM, MP, Western Australian Minister for Police and Road Safety, The Hon Michelle Roberts MLA and Curtin Vice-Chancellor Professor Deborah Terry at a special ceremony.

This striking new facility forms a key component of the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority’s Midland Master Plan that has transformed the historic Workshops Precinct into a medical and education hub. The Campus will act as a base for Curtin Medicine students in their fourth and fifth year of study and will also be used by students in Allied Health disciplines.

Curtin University Vice-Chancellor Professor Deborah Terry said the new Campus would provide students, community and industry partners with greater access to higher education in the Midland region.

“The new Campus represents exemplary standards in learning and teaching and further cements the University’s place as a leader in education and research. It will bring tertiary education to the Midland area for the first time, benefiting businesses and broader communities in the region,” Professor Terry said.

The Campus gracefully integrates state-of-the-art, technology rich learning and teaching with outstanding architecture that represents a contemporary interpretation of the ‘distinctly Curtin’ architecture combined with the heritage surrounds of the Midland Workshops Precinct.

Spread over three levels and surrounded by a welcoming, open landscape, the Campus’ complex design has been carefully considered to enhance wellbeing, promote sustainability and reflect a strong link to the Wadjuk Nyungar people.
