A $1.5 BILLION Transformation Of Flinders University Is In The Works

Jun 3, 2019


A $1.5 billion ‘Flinders Village’ featuring a health research centre, thousands of student beds, a hotel and a retail precinct will be built at Flinders University.

According to The Advertiser:

Preliminary works on Flinders Village, which will sustain an average of 1000 construction jobs over a decade, will begin next year when the Flinders Station is due to accept its first passengers.

The first major project will be a $200 million health research centre to focus on mental health and infectious diseases.

Construction of that building in 2021-22 will coincide with the first stage of a huge student accommodation project east of University Drive.

It will eventually provide 3000 new beds over a dozen or more buildings for international, regional and interstate students.

It is critical to Flinders’ plan to more than double onshore international students from 3000 to 8000.
