$20m campus for Southern Cross

Written on the 6 July 2009

A $20 million campus at Southern Cross University Gold Coast will be ready for its first student intake in February.

Developer Glenzeil is constructing the 4000 square metre site, 400 metres from Kirra Beach.

Courses in business, convention and event management, international tourism management and law and paralegal studies will be offered.

This will complement courses in secondary and early childhood education, occupational therapy, social science and sport management at the existing Southern Cross University facilities at Tweed Heads.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Paul Clark, says as well as supporting the local economy, the University has engaged the support of several key stakeholders.

“We have developed strong links with the Gold Coast City Council, Gold Coast Institute of TAFE and the Gold Coast Sport Business Taskforce as well as a range of other local community organisations and businesses,” says Clark.

“Our aim is to provide not only new educational opportunities for students, but to contribute to the social, economic and cultural development of this region.

“The construction of the building itself has already had a significant impact locally and as the interior fit-out gets underway it is expected up to 65 people will be working on the site each day.”

Professor Clark said there would be more than 1000 students studying at the University’s three Tweed and Gold Coast locations in 2010.
