Planning for our future.
Macquarie University prides itself on being vibrant and sustainable, providing an inspiring and engaging campus for staff, students and partners. To ensure they can continue to enjoy quality facilities that enhance our core strengths in teaching, research and outreach, the University is undertaking major works across the campus as part of our Campus Development Plan (CDP).
These works will set a vision for the next 50 years and are part of a significant investment to support the future development of the campus, the University and our community.

Macquarie University has long been committed to, and continues to have, an integrated and sustainable approach to any development on our campus. Wherever possible, we aim to use sustainable materials and high levels of sustainable design, minimising the impact on our beautiful green campus that started with the first landscape plantings in 1967.
Currently, we replant two trees for every one removed. We think about the longevity of the trees we choose and the fauna on campus who may use them.
To replenish trees that are damaged in storms or in decline, the University plants 50 locally native trees every year. In addition, since 2010, two hectares of bushland in and around the University Fauna Park have been under a program of assisted natural regeneration, which has resulted in hundreds of young trees coming up and reproductions of other ground and shrub layer species. Our campus creeks have been replanted and naturalised with native vegetation at an enormous rate over recent years too.
As always, safety is our top priority on campus. A key aim of our works is to improve pedestrian safety and amenity on campus. As part of this, we are aiming to improve pedestrian access on campus and ensure carparks are located on the perimeter.
During the works, alternative vehicular and pedestrian access routes may be implemented; however, they will be well signposted and advertised in advance. Accessible parking numbers are being maintained and improved across campus in most locations.
Our safety systems and processes will be in place at all times during works to ensure everyone’s safety.
