Yesteday the Times of the Torrens reported construction of a city towerblock, to accommodate more international students with the developer citing the merger-idea as a reason. “The fact that talk of the university merger is already starting to resonate with major developers bodes well for the state,” the Advertiser editorialised.

It follows a weekend pair of ‘Tiser opeds on a merger. David Lloyd (VC-UniSA) made the yes case and Peter Rathjen (VC-UniAdelaide) presented the other affirmative argument.
