Campus updates

We’re working to enhance and maintain the spaces across our campuses, so please be aware of upcoming works happening around Flinders University.

Library Plaza canopy walkway 

Works to install an access walkway and safety mesh on the library canopy roof adjacent to the plaza will commence on Saturday 11 September and continue until Friday 1 October.

This will provide safe maintenance and operational access to the library canopy roof for our maintenance staff and contractors.

Some intermittent noise will emerge from the site, so we have scheduled works during the mid-semester teaching break to minimise its impact. Alternative study spaces will be available in Level 1 of the Hub.

Pedestrian controls will be installed below the works area on the plaza. Please follow any construction-related signage.

Tree pruning  

Pruning works are planned for trees around the following buildings:

  • Law & Commerce
  • Pendopo
  • Social Sciences North
  • Humanities

This maintenance pruning will happen on Saturday 18 September from 8am to 4pm. Please follow any directional signage in place if you are moving through these areas during this time.

Upcoming oval irrigation works 

A new irrigation system will be installed by Blubuilt contractors on the upper and lower ovals from 12 September until mid-to-late October. This will involve trenching across the ovals to install irrigation piping. As these trenches will be dug and refilled each day, there will be regular disturbance to the surfaces of the ovals and undulation as the turf resettles.

Please note that the Pavilion sitting between these ovals will be inaccessible during this time.

Flinders sporting clubs and regular oval users have been made aware of these works and can provide sports participants with further information about any alternative sports arrangements in place during this time.

Following the completion of these works, the cricket pitch will be restored ahead of the summer season.

We ask that you follow any directional signage placed at the sites and suggest you take an alternative route around the ovals during this time.
