CALUMO and Microsoft: The campus of the future

As the technological, consumer and employment environment changes, universities are rapidly having to undo decades of convention and prepare for the campus of tomorrow.

University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia


With 50,000 students and 6,000 staff, UNSW is one of the world’s leading universities, ranked 3rd in Australia and 45th in the world.
