From the beginning, the Plaza and Union building were places for the Flinders University community to come together, celebrate, relax, work and play. After an eventful 50 years, and in the changing face of University life, these spaces were no longer fully servicing the needs of the University community to their full extent.
In 2014 we commenced a redevelopment of this campus heart into the brand new Plaza and Student Hub, realising the precinct’s capacity. A comprehensive student engagement project was undertaken to determine the key needs of students and staff and to inform the concept design process.
The project involved a complete refurbishment of the Union building, extending it into the Central Library, a revitalised retail and entertainment precinct alongside, and a new front door to the University.
The opening of the Plaza and Student Hub in March 2016 coincided almost 50 years to the day since Flinders University was opened, symbolising the University moving into its next 50 years as a progressive institution that underpins the economic, cultural and educational life of South Australians.
