Union House

An architecturally and culturally significant building in the Brutalist style, heritage-listed Union House will be undergoing a phase one refit over the next three years.

    Upcoming works will begin the rejuvenation of Union House that started with a revamped and relocated UniBar, and refreshed Cloisters. The project will start to enable Union House to act as a modern and unique venue for events, meetings, hospitality, clubs and a range of University services. Initial works made in conjunction with heritage consultants will create stronger links to the rest of the campus and reinstate a number of lost architectural elements, including cross-building pathways via the network of balconies.


      Stage one of the project, which involved the relocation of the UniBar and rejuvination of the Cloisters was completed in February 2019. Learn more about the UniBar & Cloisters project. The stage two upgrade to the Lady Symon building, due for completion in mid 2021, also forms part of the overall project.

      The initial rejuvination of Union House is expected to take up to three years. More information on the project will be coming soon.
