Australia's newest university campus
USC’s brand-new campus at Petrie will open in 2020.
The new campus will offer a full range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs, and will grow to 10,000 students in its first decade.
USC Moreton Bay will provide a state-of-the-art campus experience, with relevant, high-quality programs, interactive learning spaces, and a research and innovation hub for key industries.
All students will have access to practical training, work-integrated learning opportunities and the unique USC experience – rated by our students as one of Australia’s best.
The Bridge fly-through
A cutting-edge university precinct
USC Moreton Bay will be at the heart of The Mill at Petrie, a vibrant area that will include cafes, shops, professional office space, cultural events and sporting facilities.
The university precinct will also reflect USC’s ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability, with innovations in construction, green power generation and water recycling.
The campus will be a short walk from the Petrie train station (at the junction of the existing Caboolture Rail Line and the soon-to-be-opened Moreton Bay Rail Link), with easy access from Gympie Road and the Bruce Highway.
Transforming a community
USC’s vision is for the neighbouring communities of Moreton Bay and the Sunshine Coast to work together to expand educational opportunities throughout the region.
Following an agreement between QUT and USC, the current QUT campus (on the TAFE site at Caboolture) will transition to a USC campus from 1 January 2018. USC Caboolture will commence teaching from Semester 1, 2018.
As the Caboolture and Moreton Bay campuses grow, USC will work with local schools, industries and community groups to ensure we deliver educational opportunities that meet the region’s needs, and prepare graduates for the opportunities of a changing economy.
USC’s growing presence in Moreton Bay will also provide increased employment opportunities for skilled professionals, and a community hub to support the region’s cultural and economic development.
