“We have established a reputation for high quality, innovative student housing in recent years, and New College Village builds on this experience,” says Parker.

A foundation stone ceremony has marked the commencement of building on a new 319-bed residential village located at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). Envisaged as the first postgraduate community of its kind in Australia, the Vice-Chancellor and President of the University of NSW, Professor Frederick G Hilmer AO, unveiled the stone for New College Village yesterday.

Anglican residential college – New College – has entered into a partnership with the University of NSW and Sydney-based Development and Construction Company, Lipman Group Pty Ltd to manage and complete the new facility, with Allen Jack+Cottier Architects providing design services.
