Churchlands Edith Cowan University

On the west side of Pearson Street in Churchlands was, up until 2008, the Churchlands campus of Edith Cowan University. Edith Dircksey Cowan was the first woman elected into an Australian Parliament (W.A. 1920 - 1924). In 1982, several colleges were amalgamated forming the Western Australian College of Advanced Education. The College was granted university status in 1991. ECU now has campuses in Nedlands, Claremont, Bunbury and Joondalup


Churchlands ECU - Library

This is the ECU campus on Pearson Street, Churchlands. The last university semester held here was Semester 1, 2008. Soon to be demolished, the land is being sold for residential construction. The blocks are selling for around $500,000 each. Considering the prime location and the price of land in Perth in 2008, they sound like quite a reasonable deal. This is a photo of the university library. March 24 2008. Photos Ref: CECU001 (Since whole campus demolished)
