The Pop-Up Reunion Village will serve as the temporary heart of the campus for students and staff from mid 2017 through to early 2019 when the revitalisation will be complete.

The Pop-Up provides food, services and with extended opening hours throughout the year, and is designed for constant events and activities. Free events for staff and students will happen daily and more diverse activity will take place from twilight, including a medium-sized live music venue.

Central to the Pop-Up will be a new bar, brought to the campus by experienced operators The Burley Group who run Canberra Walt and Burley and Betti Bravo’s.

Food vans will be a feature of the space, including well-known local Canberra operators Brod, the makers of Broddogs and Brodburger, and Mr Papas.

Three years of community consultation and research have informed the design and activation of the village. Construction began in March 2017 and it will be open for business from early July 2017.


Within the Pop-Up is a multi-use venue with seating capacity for up to 220 people and various configurations for up to 350 people.

A high-quality AV system facilitates talks, performances and concerts. Music is a focus of the venue at night. Hospitality options abound in the village and catering packages are available upon request.

Bookings for events are being taken now. Fill out our online booking form and an event manager will respond and support the delivery of your idea.
