It is important to note that UTS gained this "University" status prior to the default renaming of Colleges of Advanced Education (CAEs) under the Australian Labor Party's Higher Education (Amalgamation) Act 1989. In 1990, it absorbed the Kuring-gai College of Advanced Education and the Institute of Technical and Adult Teacher Education of the Sydney College of Advanced Education, under the terms of the Higher Education (Amalgamation) Act 1989.
The University of Technology, Sydney is an interesting mix of architectural styles reflecting the different periods in which the buildings and grounds were constructed and renovated. The famous 'Tower' building is an example of brutalist architecture with square and block concrete designs. The Haymarket campus (building 5) combines a modern interior with the remaining exterior of the old markets building, and the recently completed buildings 4 and 6 are designed with an element of high-tech architecture.
The University recently acquired the former Sydney Institute of Technology building that stands opposite to Building 10 (on Jones St) and adjacent to Building 2. This building was named Building 7, but was demolished to make way for an extension of Alumni Green. Currently, the university is constructing an underground multi-purpose sports hall beside the Alumni Green.
