The Huxley Library is a popular and vibrant learning space where students collaborate and study.

In 1989 the Library was named after Dr Huxley, former Principal of the Hunter Institute of Higher Education.  This was a tribute to Dr Huxley’s commitment to the institution and his highly respected leadership.  Last week at a ceremony in the Huxley Library  a plaque  was unveiled honouring Doug Huxley’s contribution to higher education.
