The 17,000sqm building forms the most significant building and external space at the campus and sets the scene for future developments. The aim was to create a facility that students and staff want to stay in before and after formal teaching sessions, encouraging greater interaction between the building users; students, staff and visitors.

There are a wide range of teaching and learning spaces, with small private study rooms, large social learning zones, large café, lecture theatres, Harvard theatres, technology enhanced active learning environments and generous general teaching rooms furnished with collaborative group working furniture.

Café seating extends through the atrium area and users are encouraged to take their food or drink anywhere in the building that they feel comfortable inhabiting. The new south facing plaza, is directly connected to the café facility allowing students to study outside the building under cover.

Circulation around the building is obvious and highly visible from the main atrium, with a grand stair case linking the various levels of the building with the main lift zone located adjacent the stair.
Bridges at every level cross the atrium to provide connections between staff and student zones with breakout meeting and study spaces at every circulation interface on every floor.
