The Waterfront Kitchen on Level 1 opened at the beginning of March 2013, with the facility upgraded to provide a modern space with seating zones for coffee, casual dining, more formal dining and lounge areas. The outdoor space along Western Beach Road recently opened for al fresco dining, inviting the public to engage with the University. Additionally, a significant upgrade to the kitchen and equipment has enabled improved catering for large functions such as graduation ceremonies.
