Building U - Water Supply Shutdown - Burwood

Starts 29/08/2023, finishes 29/09/2023

Building U at the Burwood Campus is reopening on Monday 4 September, with the water supply to remain shut off.  

The building was closed earlier this week while the Infrastructure, Property and Precincts (IPP) Facilities Team investigated the discolouration of the water supply throughout the building.   

IPP have found the cause of this discolouration and is working on conducting repairs, while this takes place, the building is safe to occupy for teaching, learning and working. As the water supply needs to remain shut off to conduct these repairs, staff will need to utilise the following facilities: 

We are not expecting repairs to be any more disruptive than outlined above, however, if you are in the building you may notice the presence of contractors carrying out investigations and quiet works.
