  • As one of seven new universities built in the 1960s, the campus outside the town was designed from the bottom up. The ziggurat-like terraces with the student residences are integrated into the topography. Connected to them by a raised footpath, at the back the “Teaching Wall” extends, a block over 400m long that contains all the teaching and research facilities.

  • The campus was supplemented from the 1970s onwards by other architects to changed plans. In use. Since 2003 Grade II* heritage listed.
