Future Harper Master Plan Developments

Future developments in the Harper Master Plan include:

Thyne Reid Link

To achieve its strategic imperative to increase diversity at College without reducing the size of the Students’ Club, Council aims, in the long term, to increase size of the undergraduate community to 300 places.

The Thyne and Reid Buildings will be joined by a link along the Carillon Avenue boundary that will provide additional undergraduate bedrooms, tutorial rooms, a gym and other common spaces. In addition, three stories will be added to the Reid building to provide en-suite rooms for senior students.


South East Corner Precinct

There is strong demand for low cost student accommodation in Newtown. The College will assist the University of Sydney to meet this ongoing need by providing a building, facing Western Avenue, for approximately 150 students. These students will not be part of the College community and appropriate arrangements will be made to limit these students from accessing College facilities. The building will be situated on the site of the Dougan Lodge, which will be demolished, requiring a new Principal’s residence to be built adjacent to the Harper Building.


Gillespie Hall

The new gateway to the University, this precinct will open the North East corner of the College to the University.
