The temporary teaching facility will be a modular building located behind the Art Museum on the St Lucia campus. The facility will support teaching and learning advancements in the short-term while plans for permanent Teaching and Learning facilities are developed and finalised.

The project was approved in response to school and faculty feedback for the provision of more large scale, interactive learning areas.

The facility will create seven new spaces for collaborative learning:

  • Two 78 capacity rooms
  • Three 120 capacity rooms*
  • Two 150 capacity rooms*

*Some of these spaces may be combined together to form larger rooms.

Rooms will be equipped with six seat collaborative tables that can combine to form eight or nine seat tables and will feature whiteboards (both wall lined and mobile) and power options for students. All rooms will have standard central audio-visual functionality, some with the ability to provide dual inputs on projection screens.

To complement the collaborative learning spaces, 184 informal learning seats will be provided for students to connect, collaborative and engage outside class time.


The facility will operate for a period of five years and will open during the second half of 2020.
