Notre Dame has not yet decided on uses for the building, but student accommodation is one concept under consideration.

Notre Dame sets sights on Customs House

The University of Notre Dame Australia has entered into an agreement to purchase the heritage-listed Customs House building in Fremantle’s West End for an undisclosed sum.

Built in 1908 to house the main branch of the Customs Department of Western Australia, from the 1980s onwards it has been home to several art organisations including  Deckchair Theatre, as well as art studios.

The property includes three separate buildings spread across 8,000 square metres, with street frontage on Packenham, Phillimore and Henry streets.
