This includes the new School of Business and Public Policy Building, and a new administration building and Learning Resource Centre at the Pacific Institute of Leadership and Governance.

In addition to the works associated with the Precinct, UPNG has received new facilities under separate commitments from Australia, as agreed under the 2013 Joint Understanding between Australia and PNG for increased bilateral cooperation.
