Immense Campus Changes Afoot

Posted on Jun 10, 2022

The worlds sprawling University campuses with their extensive built infrastructure are under pressure. Urgent pressure.


Largely created in the 1990’s and 2000’s campuses both large and small are now suffering post Covid.


The world wide Covid induced need for staff and students of all disciplines and experiences to work and learn from home – at least part time, has changed the way we work and study forever.


Economists and social anthropologists have suggested that it will be seen as one of the defining ‘Black Swan’ moments in human history.


And so, campuses across the globe are having to make wholesale adjustments to their built fabric with literally hectares of accommodation now surplus to core requirements.


H2o are fortunate to have been engaged to critically assist in managing this transition, studying the accommodation impact of changed staffing, research and teaching requirements on campuses across Australia.
