Parramatta. New uni in town

The University of New England, in Armidale, has leased two buildings in the heart of the Parramatta CBD. The university has leased the 400-square-metre, two-storey, heritage-listed, formerly Parramatta’s first post office, completed in 1880 – and latterly used as a restaurant – at 211-213 Church Street, and premises of 430 square metres, opposite, formerly a St George Bank branch.

UNE proposes to use the heritage building as an information office and café, and the other as offices for staff and students. The lease period for each building is seven years with a seven-year option. A DA is being prepared for consideration by Parramatta City Council.
