UNSW has secured the State Significant Development Approval for the UNSW Health Translation Hub (UNSW HTH). UNSW’s expansion into the Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct is on track to be completed in 2025.

A significant project for UNSW, the UNSW HTH will integrate health education, training and research with acute healthcare services, directly benefiting patients, carers and the NSW community.

Located on the corner of High Street and Botany Street Randwick, the UNSW HTH includes:  

  • Purpose-built spaces for researchers, educators and industry partners to work alongside clinicians
  • Education, training and research rooms
  • Clinical schools and ambulatory care clinics
  • Food and beverage retail and supporting amenities including allied health services
  • Space for community and cultural events
  • Publicly accessible open space for the community
  • Pedestrian prioritised links, including bridges, to easily connect to UNSW’s Kensington Campus and the broader Randwick Hospitals Campus.

UNSW Estate Management has managed the development process and has worked with some of Australia’s leading consultants including Architectus, Aspect Studios, Yerrabingin and Arup to develop the Health Translation Hub. The UNSW HTH has been developed to support the acceleration of improved health services for communities locally and globally. The UNSW HTH is not just a building but instead a place which will drive UNSW’s vision to realise future health benefits.

The new UNSW Plaza, with 2,500 square metres of publicly accessible open space, will help to create an engaging and welcoming place for staff, students, patients, community, industry partners who are attracted to learn, research, work and socialise.

The UNSW HTH will sit adjacent to the Sydney Children’s Stage 1 and Children’s Comprehensive Cancer Centre building. These two buildings will accompany the Acute Services Building (ASB), currently in construction, to expand the Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct. UNSW has approximately 5000 square metres of space in the ASB which will promote the physical and working integration between UNSW and the Hospital.

The NSW Government has partnered with the University of New South Wales (UNSW) to strengthen the Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct through the integration of additional health education, training, and research with acute healthcare services - directly benefiting patients, carers, and the wider NSW community.

Building on over 60 years of teaching hospital affiliations, this partnership will help grow the relationship between UNSW and the Randwick Hospitals Campus, its research institutes and broader health partners.

The UNSW HTH will enable a seamless physical and working integration between the hospitals and UNSW, positioning the wider precinct at the forefront of international health research and education.

The Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct is an initiative where UNSW’s teachers, researchers and students can thrive. Students will work side-by-side with researchers on real-life cases and practitioners will be better positioned to answer big research questions and solve significant health problems.

The inspiration is that this shared interaction will allow researchers to undertake studies that are immediately relevant in the real world, with the results of these studies benefitting patients available to the treating clinicians without delay.

The precinct will move toward a more personalised, holistic approach to healthcare supported by community-based services that promote patient participation, early detection of illness and maintenance of good health to prevent illness.
