The Parramatta Eels have joined the University of New England to launch the new Future Campus in Parramatta.
The players joined Eels fans and Parramatta locals for a street party to launch the ground-breaking new campus in Church Street, Parramatta.
In development since 2011, the Future Campus is a one-of-a-kind learning hub that allows students to access learning anywhere in the world, as well as becoming the focal point for UNE community engagement in Western Sydney.
It will support more than 2,000 students - including some of the Parramatta Eels' own NRL players - offering telecommuting technology, flexible 1-on-1 tutoring and course advice, and some of the most cutting edge sports science technology available.
