The relocation of the University of Tasmania's northern campus is safe, the City of Launceston council say.
The comments come after the university announced plans to redesign its curriculum on Wednesday.
Mayor Albert van Zetten said the announcement would have no impact on the new campus.
"The University move from Newnham to Inveresk is an exciting project for Launceston and represents the largest infrastructure project in the city's history," he said.

Funding for the Launceston campus is secured through the Launceston City Deal and construction is already underway, he said.
"I'm confident that the projects outlined in the Northern Transformation Program will be delivered as promised."
The University will work through those course changes over the coming months for the 2021 academic year.
