Bond University - BU

As Australia’s first private non-profit university, Bond University seeks to be recognised internationally as a leading independent university, imbued with a spirit to innovate, a commitment to influence and a dedication to inspire tomorrow’s professionals who share a personalised and transformational student experience. The University was established at the initiative of Alan Bond, the founder and Chairman of Bond Corporation and Harunori Takahashi, President of EIE International. The University's development was funded via a joint venture between Bond Corporation in Australia and the Japanese entity, EIE International. In 1987, the Parliament of Queensland granted Bond University university status via the passage of the Bond University Act. The University commenced teaching in May 1989 with an initial intake of 322 students. In 1991, EIE acquired Bond Corporation's share of the company development that controlled the land on which the University buildings were constructed and the surrounding development lands. The campus was acquired by Bond University Ltd in its own right in August 1999.

Bond University
  • Arata Isozaki, a Japanese architect of international repute, designed the Arch building which houses the Library and the Faculty of Society and Design in two wings.
  • The West and East Wings are linked by a two storey arch, housing academic and administration offices. The building looks out onto Lake Orr, a man-made lake.
  • Local Helidon sandstone cladding, quarried east of Toowoomba covers the arch.
  • This was chosen to create a look of beauty and permanence with its distinctive contours, colours and lifespan.
  • Approximately 10,000 square metres of quarry tiles are used for walkways on campus together with 10,000 square metres of paving stones from Victoria for internal roadways.
  • The University bell tower commands the Northern corner of the Business Faculty building.
  • At the top of the tower are nine brass bells, cast at the Royal Eijsbouts Foundry in Holland in 1989.
  • The bells are a slightly different shape from traditional bells, which gives them the ability to play tunes in a major rather than a minor key.
  • These are the first bells of this type to be hung in Australia.
  • These bells are linked to an electronic system which allows staff to program them to play different tunes at pre-arranged times each day.
  • The Business Faculty building has four levels and is across the piazza from the Law Faculty building which is a mirror image.
  • In place of the bells is a clock, which sets off bell ringing at certain times of the day.
  • A main focal point of the campus is the distinctively shaped lake which provides spectacular reflections by day and night and has an amphitheatre for outdoor concerts and other activities. A series of steps provides seating while the lawns provide a green belt where students can socialise.
