USC Moreton Bay

USC has built Australia’s newest university campus at Petrie, in the heart of Moreton Bay. Opening at the former Petrie Paper Mill site in early 2020, the campus offers world-class study opportunities for residents in the region, with almost 50 undergraduate degrees and $10 million worth of state-of-the-art technology.

Until the Covid lock down, some 1400 students had enrolled, and this supports the long term plan to grow to 10,000 students within 10 years. Moreton Bay Regional Council has been actively adding to the infrastructure with the new first ever free water park already opened. 

Petrie is situated close to the coastline and the Brisbane airport, it’s a fantastic opportunity to invest into a rapidly expanding precinct operating as a Priority Development Area.

The high demand for opportunities in higher education are well catered for in this very smart new University.
