Window cleaning and upgrades to McHughs

Works occurring around campus this week include refurbishing spaces at McHughs and window cleaning across Bedford Park and Sturt campuses.

Upgrades at McHughs

The refurbishment of spaces at McHughs will commence on Monday 8 August, and this building will be closed for use during this project, which is expected to be completed by October 2022. Alternative prayer rooms are located at Sturt and Oasis.

Some noise, vibration, debris and dust will be noticeable in this area during these works, so please take care when you’re in the vicinity and follow any directions or signage in place.

These works will provide a multifunctional space at McHughs  for students, serving both as a study area and as a facility for student-driven club events and activities.
