The University of Sydney partnership

The WECC level 1 project is the first major upgrade of shared education, training and research spaces for Westmead Hospital.

The University of Sydney has committed to invest $500m into Westmead for infrastructure and programs over the next 15 years.

The University of Sydney’s investment in Westmead will see the number of students at the campus quadruple to more than 6,000 students, and enhance the already active interdisciplinary collaborations between healthcare, research and education at Westmead. Patients, clinicians and researchers will continue to build on the culture of innovation and knowledge sharing at Westmead.

The transformation of education, training and research at Westmead responds to our growing multidisciplinary environment and better aligns with the Westmead precinct’s vision of a being a global health precinct.
