Casual learning areas with wall nooks to sleep in at all hours and study spaces that look like coffee shops are part of a billion-dollar plan to keep university students on campus. The University of Technology, Sydney’s campus redevelopment is the biggest in this country, says the man overseeing it, UTS deputy vice-chancellor (resources) Patrick Woods. It may seem a risky investment now that students can listen to lectures via podcasts or take courses from the world’s best universities online for free. But armed with a 50 per cent increase in floor space, the planners are focusing on how to lure students onsite. UTS calls it ”the sticky campus”.
