Project Information

The QUT 2033 Master Plan delivers a strategic framework for planning and development of Queensland University of Technology over the next 25 years. The overall aim of this master plan was to meet the potential growth needs and aspirational direction of QUT up to, and beyond 2033, providing a tool for the university to ensure decisions made today, do not compromise options to meet longer-term needs and optimal potential.

In recognition of the strategic and future planning opportunities that exist for QUT as part of the maturing city of Brisbane and an increasingly globalised education industry, the university has appointed a multidisciplinary consortium led by Urbis, in association with Woods Bagot (John Holm and Gunther De Graeve), Economic Futures Australia and Rubida Research to undertake the task of preparing the Master Plan.

The project was developed in two distinct working phases:

Phase 1: developed the strategic direction and approach that will galvanise the University as a leading global tertiary institution over the next 25 years. The findings of this Phase form the Master Plan Brief.

Phase 2: translates the strategic direction and background research undertaken in Phase 1 into a spatial strategy and master plan framework to guide existing and future university development to the year 2033.
