The Boiler House
A special piece of the University of Canberra history, as implied by name, The Boiler House was once the primary mechanical provider of heating for all University buildings. Decommissioned in 1991 it was later converted to the largest lecture theatre on campus.
Featuring rake style seating for 539, this venue won the prize for Extensions, Refurbishments or Alterations.
The citation said, in part,
“the panel was impressed with the vision and idea to create the lecture theatre within the existing, unused boiler house … The cost of construction was far cheaper than the price that would have been required for a new building and the project time of nine months from design to project completion was a tribute to the team’s effort.”
A wonderful piece of campus history and superb example of building reuse. The Boiler House provides an ideal venue for large public lectures and forums
When not being utilised for teaching purposes, the University of Canberra’s extensive array of lecture theatres and tutorial rooms may be booked by external users.
With 150 rooms to choose from and capacities ranging from 20 to 200, these venues are ideal for training sessions, public lectures and presentations.
