The USC Moreton Bay campus


Discover Australia's newest uni campus

USC Moreton Bay is welcoming students soon into its 16,000sqm state-of-the-art foundation building.

The  USC Moreton Bay campus, opening in February 2020, is currently being built on the site of the former Petrie Paper Mill, right next to the Petrie train station.

USC Moreton Bay will be first full-service university campus ever built in the region, delivering more education opportunities for local students. USC Moreton Bay’s 16,000 sqm foundation facility will have everything you’d expect from a world-class university – all conveniently located within three levels under one roof.

Designed by award-winning architects Hassell Studios and built by national construction company Hansen Yuncken, the foundation building includes: 

  • A flexible 460-seat capacity auditorium for teaching and community events
  • $15 million worth of state-of-the-art technology
  • Nursing simulation and science labs, including a large "Super lab" facility where experiments using chemicals can be safely carried out
  • Engineering labs, with specialist areas for robotics, advanced manufacturing, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, geomechanics and civil construction
  • Library, Student Services and Support facilities, and café/retail shops

This is the first stage in a planned 10.5-hectare university precinct that will form the heart of The Mill at Moreton Bay, a vibrant civic, cultural and educational precinct planned by Moreton Bay Regional Council.

A university in the heart of Petrie

Adjacent to the Petrie train station, a major public bus interchange and the Petrie to Kippa-Ring shared cycle/walking path, USC Moreton Bay also includes the largest end-of-trip facilities of any USC campus, so more people can walk, run, or ride to the university precinct.

The campus is the first stage of Moreton Bay Regional Council's The Mill at Moreton Bay precinct, on the site of the former Petrie Paper Mill. We’re committed to working with Council to create a vibrant hub for community education, research, business and industry groups .

By 2030, we expect USC Moreton Bay to be equal in size to our flagship USC Sunshine Coast campus, with 10,000 students enrolled and more than 100 degrees on offer.
