Charles Darwin University is at a pivotal point in its development. With a strategy for substantial growth in place, the time is right to explore how our Greater Darwin campuses can best support positive outcomes for our University, staff, students, partners and the wider Darwin community.
With the City Deal providing the opportunity for CDU to play a crucial role in revitalising Darwin’s CBD through the proposed development of a new CDU CBD campus at a new Education and Civic Precinct, we’ve embarked on a project to explore what’s possible and feasible both in the City Centre and at our existing Greater Darwin Campuses.
To help guide future decision making and investment, we’ve started two parallel masterplanning processes that are being driven by a shared strategic direction for CDU to Connect Discover Grow, the University’s strategic plan.
CBD Education and Civic Precinct Masterplan
Planning for the shift of a range of CDU’s current operations to the City Centre.
Existing Campus Masterplan
Planning for the future of CDU’s Casuarina, Palmerston and Waterfront locations.
Charles Darwin was a visionary.
From one discovery to the next, he never stopped dreaming, thinking and learning.
At Charles Darwin University, we embrace this legacy and are continuing to evolve.
New partnerships await to be formed, modern challenges arise to be solved, and Charles Darwin University will continue to deliver outward-looking, high-impact contributions to the world of knowledge.
What is a Masterplan?
A Masterplan is a non-statutory, high-level plan that will help to ensure there is a cohesive and strategic approach to investment and development over a decade or more.
Our City Centre and Greater Darwin existing campus Masterplans will consider how physical assets and environments can best be designed, utilised and activated to deliver desired outcomes. In the context of a University these outcomes may include the delivery of education, training, research, experiences, partnerships and knowledge creation.
Join the Conversation
During the past few months, we’ve been talking with staff, students and stakeholders to guide the principles and plans for the CBD Education and Civic precinct.
Now we want to hear from the people who use and connect with the existing Greater Darwin campuses to gain your feedback on your current experiences and opportunities for improvement.
