Clayton Campus Developments
C12 Car Park – Currently Monash Residential Services Urban Community parking
The space currently offering car parking for MRS residents has been re-zoned for university development. During semester 2, MRS Urban Community residents will be reallocated parking bays in the N1 car park. This arrangement will remain until the end of 2018.
Work has begun to upgrade the physical workspaces of the centrally located Chancellery buildings. The revitalisation of these original 1960s buildings will alter the floor plan to support a more integrated and aligned way of working. Flexible pods, collaborative office and meeting spaces will improve the quality of interactions between staff and key partners and with students.
The completed Chancellery buildings will integrate with the rejuvenated Forum landscape and Sir Louis Matheson library forecourt, and complement the dynamic central campus precinct around the Northern Plaza. Buildings 3A and 3B in this location will commence demolition and development works in October 2017.
Estimated completion for the project is mid-late 2019

Victorian Heart Hospital
Australia's first dedicated heart hospital will be located in the eastern precinct of our Clayton campus, adjacent to the Australian Synchrotron.
The Victorian State Government, in partnership with Monash University and Monash Health, has committed $478 million to fully fund the construction of the Victorian Heart Hospital. A total of $543 million has now been committed to the project, including a capital and in-kind contribution of $65 million from Monash University.
The new heart hospital will have allocated spaces for Monash University students to learn, research and gain experience studying alongside industry experts. This includes training facilities for cardiac medicine, nursing and related healthcare professions.
The proposed hospital will accommodate approximately 195 beds, an emergency department, cardiac catheterization labs, specialist surgical and imaging facilities and tele-medicine services for Victorian, interstate and even international patients. The hospital will have capacity to provide 2,000 cardiac surgeries per year and 108,000 consultations and outpatient appointments.
Designed by Conrad Gargett and John Wardle Architects, in joint venture, the design takes inspiration from the tree-lined campus site, with an emphasis on opening the building to the surrounding landscape.
Early construction works will begin this year, with completion of the hospital expected in 2022.
Ian Potter Centre for the Performing Arts
Funded with the support of the Victorian Government, the Ian Potter Foundation and Monash Foundation, a revitalised 586-seat Alexander Theatre (Which has been completed) will be the cornerstone of a new cultural precinct for the University. Once the theatre is refurbished, work will begin on a new Sound Gallery and 200-seat Jazz Club.
Collectively the renewed Alexander Theatre and two new venues will be named The Ian Potter Centre for Performing Arts, in recognition of the generous donation from The Ian Potter Foundation. The Alexander Theatre will reopen its doors in 2018, with the Jazz Club and Sound Gallery to follow in 2019.
A major lighting upgrade is underway at Clayton Campus to enhance security and evening useability and activation.
The project has resulted from a 2016 audit of the external lighting levels at the campus. It is delivering improved and compliant lighting levels to identified areas across the campus using energy efficient LED lighting.
Similar lighting upgrades are planned for Caulfield and Peninsula campuses.
