About us

Westmead is a major priority for the University's next era of strategic growth. The University is working with our partners at Westmead to grow our student body at Westmead to 6,000 by 2030, with a commensurate growth in academic activities. Importantly, this growth is expected to diversify and innovate the University's offerings in research and education, as Westmead introduces entirely new programs and explores new ways of working.

The University has committed to involving all disciplines – not just those that are health related – to contribute to this venture. In short, this strategy proposes a redefinition of the University’s institutional framework to help the Westmead site scale up its interdisciplinary operations into what we call the Westmead Living Lab, and nurture a Living Lab culture amongst all Precinct partners and their associated constituencies.

The Westmead Precinct is undergoing development that will involve investments in excess of $1 billion. This redevelopment will result in Sydney having one of the largest and most integrated precincts focussed on health and wellbeing in Australia. It also provides an opportunity to transform an array of innovative networks that combine excellence in research, education, and practice into a large scale, world renowned Living Lab concerned with health and wellbeing. The Living Lab will build on the University’s collaborations in the precinct since its inception.

Since our inception 160 years ago, the University of Sydney has led to improve the world around us. We believe in education for all and that effective leadership makes lives better. These same values are reflected in our approach to diversity and inclusion and underpin our long-term strategy for growth. We’re Australia's first university and have an outstanding global reputation for academic and research excellence. Across our campuses, we employ over 7600 academic and non-academic staff who support over 60,000 students.

We are undergoing significant transformative change which brings opportunity for innovation, progressive thinking, breaking with convention, challenging the status quo, and improving the world around us.
