The future arrives at UC Village?

By johnboy 1 July 2009 1

Andrew Barr is very excited by the opening of a vast student accomodation complex at the University of Canberra:

    Minister for Education and Training Andrew Barr today officially opened the University of Canberra Village, a $38 million, 507 bed student accommodation complex on campus.

    “With a 5-star energy efficiency rating, passive solar designs, grey water recycling, a wildlife corridor, an e-Library, common lounge areas, café, shared barbecue and balcony areas as well as green space to encourage a sense of community, this complex represents the future of tertiary education in the ACT,” Mr Barr said.

When 507 new beds bring the total accommodation up to 1,500 it’s a big day.

The other question is how long this heaven on earth remains attractive under the assault of the student population’s wicked ways.

What’s Your opinion?

It keeps reminding me of Toad Hall. A sociological experiment of the worst sort.
