A consolidated site could support up to 10,000 EFTSL. Replacement value of core buildings approaching $140M. Cost to upgrade $60M + Existing suite of rooms does not match requirements. Master Campus Capacity and Context Bendigo Campus: Masterplan Summary La Trobe University

6 Bendigo Campus Master Plan Framework key objectives To create and sustain competitive advantage for LTU through the differentiation of the Campus (radical, free thinking, accessible), cost leadership (cost benefit, amenity return), and by focus on geographic and historical strengths. Make the campus a better place to learn, teach, research, work, and live. Consolidate activities to the Campus Core to improve efficiency, add to vibrancy and reduce travel times between locations. Better integrate the campus with the local community by facilitating pedestrian access routes into the campus and attractive development of peripheral lands. Reduce LTU carbon emissions with the ultimate goal of making the Campus carbon-neutral. Maximise the use of existing buildings and infrastructure. Improve the external presentation of the campus and provide a visual Gateway to the Campus from the Edwards Rd and Ellis St intersection. Bendigo Campus: Masterplan Summary La Trobe University

7 Create a ‘Learning Commons Lawn’ to foster external Informal Learning. Develop non-Core land in a sustainable way to provide amenity and a financial return to LTU. Develop new integration to the bushland to form buffer zones and a wildlife corridor along with an integral storm water retention system. Improve pedestrian links for public bus stops. Consolidation of open parking into multideck parking. Student housing upgrade. Bendigo Campus Master Plan Implementation Projects Develop external areas on campus to create a campus form and direction. These areas include ‘the Avenue’, ‘the Street’, a ‘Campus Green’ and an external ‘Learning Commons’. Create a ‘Campus Green‘ meeting area with food outlets at the base of the Visual Arts building and direct access to a new library entry. Construct a new building north of current line of buildings to create a new public frontage and give definition to ‘the Avenue’ and ‘the Street’. Reconfigure the library by enclosing the undercroft and creating a new entry on the west side.
