Campus works – September and October

In the lead up to and across the upcoming mid-semester break, many of our campus works are undertaken to help minimise disruption for our students.  See below for details of the planned works.

Sturt Gym

The Sturt Gym (map ref V6) will be closed throughout the mid-semester break (Monday 30 September to Thursday 3 October 2019) for refurbishment of the staircase.  As these works will create noise and dust, teaching bookings have been relocated and the basketball court, labs, teaching spaces and toilets will be closed.

Car Park 8

To enable works on the new Glasshouse in the College of Science and Engineering, Car Park 8 will be temporarily closed from 21 September until 6 October 2019. Please use other car parks during this time. Car parks 7 and 9 are the closest or use the parking signage around campus to locate alternative available parks. You can see car parks numbered on the campus map.

Tonsley electrical work

On Sunday 29 September from 7am to 5pm there will be no access to the Tonsley building as electrical work is undertaken. While the building will be closed, the Flinders University pods will not be affected. Please make sure all electrical equipment and computers are shut down prior to this work.

Social Sciences North Edible Garden

As part our sustainability projects, the garden beds in the courtyard of Social Sciences North have been cleared ready for ongoing development over the coming months.  Additional citrus trees and herbs will be planted over the coming months.

Matthew Flinders Foyer Canopy and Flinders Laneway

From 23 September through to 4 October 2019 there will be some rolling pedestrian diversions in place in the breezeway between Flinders Laneway and the Library as we undertake some work in the Matthew Flinders canopy and refresh the Flinders Laneway (map ref J8).

There will be intermittent low level noise in the area and the breezeway toilets will be temporarily closed at various times. Please follow all signage in place during this time. Access assistance remains available at any time by calling Security on 8201 2880.
