Public Realm Strategy

The University's public realm comprises the streets, parks, green spaces and other outdoor places between our buildings and grounds.

A new long-term strategy aims improve the quality of the North Terrace campus public realm to make it more welcoming and pedestrian focused, with a consistent approach to design and materials that speaks to both the University’s 140 year history and to contemporary use by staff, students and the general public. The strategy will consider the campus interface with the River Torrens and establish new spaces for informal study, learning and teaching.


Design concepts will focus on:

  • creating distinctive entrances
  • pedestrian permeability and removal of barriers
  • campus activation
  • Kaurna cultural interpretation and creation of spaces for ceremonial activities
  • heritage, public art and branding
  • water sensitive urban design opportunities
  • consolidating vehicle movement
  • end of trip facilities, and
  • campus operational requirements.
