“This will be an important part of Liverpool becoming one of the great smart cities around the Western Sydney airport,” she said at the launch.
“It’s a great opportunity for high school kids here because they will have greater opportunities if they can go to universities in places closer to where they live.”
The campus is temporarily located in Liverpool City Council’s Moore Street building while its new purpose-built facility is being completed in Elizabeth Street next to Westfield.
The campus will accommodate up to 7000 students by 2030.
