Roundhouse Refurbishment Project

The famous UNSW Roundhouse is being fully refurbished, creating an exciting new on-campus central meeting space and events venue for our students. Works commenced in mid-2016 and the new-look Roundhouse is set to open in late 2017.

On completion there will be four major spaces in the Roundhouse:

  • Two new ground-floor student lounges 
  • Updated main event space on the ground floor 
  • Updated bar and bistro on the ground floor 
  • Newly created first-floor function rooms and meeting spaces.

The Roundhouse Refurbishment Project will involve extensive works to the building, with only the concrete/steel structure, roof sheeting and some minor areas remaining. The new works will deliver a code-compliant and fit-for-purpose venue that extends the building’s lifespan for a further 30 years.
