An Exceptional Home for Health

At the University of Wollongong, we’re driven to meet the toughest challenges in human health in our region and beyond, from the global antimicrobial resistance crisis to technologies and care modalities to enhance quality of life. 

At Innovation Campus, improving health outcomes through research and development is a primary focus, from the inspiring and impactful work taking place in AHSRI to the Sustainable Buildings Research Centre’s research to improve human comfort, health and wellbeing through better building design.

Our campus will soon become home to the Health and Wellbeing Precinct – the heart of our Health and Wellbeing Strategy and a key driver in translating our research excellence into transformative outcomes in human health. The precinct will incorporate a unique clinician-led ‘one-stop diagnostic shop’ where health practitioners and researchers will work side-by-side to deliver innovative research and patient-centred care.
