Curtin University Midland Campus

Project overview

The Curtin University Midland Campus forms a key component of the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority’s Midland master plan, which has repositioned the historic Workshops precinct as a medical and education hub and helped to recreate the employment, economic and community spirit of the area’s historic past. With strong support from the City of Swan, the State Government committed $22 million in funding and reserved land to support the establishment of the facility.

The three-storey facility totalling approximately 3000 square metres features state-of-the-art learning and teaching spaces including immersive simulation based environments for Health Science disciplines. Key users of the facility include the Curtin Medicine, Nursing and Allied Health programs.

Construction of Curtin University Midland Campus commenced early 2018 and is now complete.
