Four of Australia's leading universities, based in New South Wales, have agreed to collaborate in building Australia's first 'multiversity' in the Western Sydney Airport Aerotroplis precinct.

The NUW alliance of the University of Wollongong, Western Sydney University, the University of New South Wales and the University of Newcastle will build New South Wales' first new university in 50 years with a focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
