Last year Charles Sturt University (CSU) celebrated 25 years as a university. This timeline provides some snapshots from the 25 years, but the most important moments in that time belong to our students and staff.


Charles Sturt University's four Faculties (Arts, Business, Education and Science) comprise a number of Schools and centres for specific areas of study and research.


Charles Sturt University has established designated Research Centres representing concentrations of research expertise that align with CSUs mission. Centres are expected to demonstrate sustained success in an area of research that supports the strategic direction and key performance indicators of the University. Within each Centre, research activities are arranged around a number of theme areas under which collaboration and interdisciplinary research is encouraged.


CSU graduates have long enjoyed one of the best employment rates of any university in the country*, and our focus continues to be producing job-ready graduates with the experience and skills to hit the ground running. Our Career Service is one more way we can give you the edge after graduation.

The Careers Service

When you study with us you'll get career development workshops, support finding work experience placements, personal appointments with our career development officers and tips on job applications, resume writing, interview techniques and job search strategies.


Student services

Higher education should be for everyone. We can help you connect with scholarships, grants, loans and assistance that can make all the difference.

Housing services

There is a range of comfortable and affordable accommodation options available across our campus network to suit your lifestyle and budget.

There are also rental and boarding accommodation options off-campus in the campus cities.

  • On campus accommodation
  • Off campus accommodation

Library services

The learning commons is more than a library. It offers a range of services, resources, technology and facilities in one building.

Student Life

Campus life

CSU's NSW campuses are located in some of Australia's fastest growing regional cities, offering a unique study experience with access to the best of city living along with the benefits of a regional lifestyle.

Large campuses have allowed the development of fully operational, hands-on teaching facilities, ranging from state-of-the-art scientific and computer laboratories to television studios, broadcasting studios and a simulated hospital. Our facilities set us apart from other universities, allowing students to learn the skills required to be industry-ready from the first year of study.

Heads of Campus:
  • Albury-Wodonga
  • Bathurst
  • Dubbo
  • Orange
  • Wagga Wagga

Sports facilities

Join a sporting or recreational club, or consider one of our social, religious, cultural or study clubs. Whatever your choice, it's a great way to get involved in uni life and meet new friends.

Clubs are a great way to meet new people, pursue your interests, and get the most out of your University experience.

There are several student representative bodies at CSU.

Student clubs

Each CSU campus has a Student Representative Committee (SRC). These SRC's provide funding for student events, student clubs and student publications. The SRC's are also the representatives for student issues on individual campuses.
