Discover Australia's newest uni campus

USC Moreton Bay opens at Petrie in early 2020 with a 16,000sqm state-of-the-art foundation building.

Stage One of USC Moreton Bay is being built on the site of the former Petrie Paper Mill, next to the Petrie train station.

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

  • A flexible 480-seat capacity lecture theatre for teaching and community events
  • $10 million worth of state-of-the-art technology
  • Nursing simulation labs
  • Engineering labs
  • Makerspace
  • Library facilities
  • A core commitment to renewable energy

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.

Take a sneak peek inside USC Moreton Bay with a virtual tour of our brand-new foundation building, opening in early 2020.

A university in the heart of Petrie

USC Moreton Bay is next to the Petrie train station, making it easier for everyone to get to campus. It’s easily accessible from Old Gympie Road (Paper Avenue, opposite Wylie Park) and the Petrie to Kippa-Ring Shared path, meaning more people can walk, run, or ride to campus.

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.
