‘Tis the season for campus updates

A facelift for the Engineering building is one of many works happening across campus in the lead-up to the festive period, and a reminder that there will be power and water outages across campus in the coming weeks. 

Building panel replacement – Engineering building

Building panel replacement is occurring on the Sir Eric Neal Engineering building from December 2022 through to February 2023. As part of these works, scaffolding will be in place around the entrance on the western side of the building. There will be occasional closures to this entrance, with other entrances remaining open.

Power outage – Earth Sciences Building

To make the final connection for the new vehicle to grid electric chargers in car park 9, electrical isolation of the Earth Science building will occur this Thursday 8 December between 3.30am and 8am.

For safety reasons, the building will not be accessible during this time. For any queries about the electrical isolation, please contact PFD on 8201 2733.

Water outage – Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 December

A reminder that maintenance works for water services on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 December will result in a water outage for North and South Ridges. The following services will be affected:

  • Tap water
  • Toilet flushing
  • Showers
  • Any equipment requiring water
  • Air conditioning
  • Humidifiers

Back- up portable toilets will be available at the southern end of the Plaza and in front of the Sports Centre.

A second planned outage for the IST and Engineering buildings across the weekend of Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 January 2023 will impact the same services. Where possible, please avoid the campus at these times.

Please note, these works will not impact fire services.
