The building contains:

  • Seven laboratories
  • Innovative teaching spaces
  • An external yarning circle learning space which features local Indigenous medicinal plants
  • Multi-purpose learning and research spaces
  • Cutting edge occupational therapy labs fitted with specialised adaptive and accessible kitchen, laundry and bathroom teaching spaces.
