Boasting world-leading acoustic spaces, the Conservatorium features multiple rehearsal spaces, small studios, a flexible performance and rehearsal venue designed for professional recording capability, a 400-seat performance space, student hub and performance space foyer and informal study and meeting spaces.
It can also lay claim to one of the world’s largest oculus windows, six metres in diameter. The Conservatorium is also now able to integrate over 1,000 enrolled music students and 6,600 students from other faculties across two campuses.
