Carnegie Mellon University is the second American university to open a campus in Australia, after the University of Notre Dame, based in Fremantle. The university chose to open a campus in Adelaide as part of the South Australian Government's vision to establish Australia's first international university precinct around Victoria Square in the Adelaide city centre. The university is guided by a Joint Advisory Board of influential leaders from around Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. The precinct is situated in the heart of the city; Carnegie Mellon University-Australia is co-located with the University College London's School of Energy and Resources (Australia), research and policy institutes including the Torrens Resilience Institute and The Australian Centre for Social Innovation, and adjacent to the Flinders University's city facilities.
