[+] Universities Join Forces to Create Aerotropolis ‘Multiversity’


The Western Sydney Aerotropolis will be one of the largest and most ambitious development projects in Australia’s history.

Among the many components of the project is a major education precinct unlike anything that has come before it—the “multiversity”.

In this TUD Plus Briefing, taken from The Urban Developer’s Education Development vSummit, the then chief operating officer of the NUW Alliance’s Jane Reynaud explains this part of the development and how the alliance was shaping a new approach and delivery to tertiary education.

Reynaud said that the alliance was “a bit of a curious beast”.

“It is Australia’s first formal partnership of four leading research-intensive NSW universities: University of Newcastle, UNSW, University of Wollongong and, of course, Western Sydney University,” she said.


“These are all competing institutions, they’re all competing for students and funding and research infrastructure and all the rest of it.

“But where we come together is a really unique proposition and that is in a collaborative space.

“Our remit is to really deploy the critical mass that we represent, to drive new and impactful benefit for the community, for the economy, for the government and industry in New South Wales.”
