Multiple locations
We aim to provide a range of high-quality scholarly information resources and services to the Federation University community. In doing so, we recognise staff and students of the University are central to all that we do. 


  • As Victoria’s premier regional university, we have been educating Australia’s future leaders, innovators and thinkers for 150 years.
  • Federation University Australia was formed when the former University of Ballarat and the Gippsland Campus of Monash University were amalgamated.   


  • At Federation University, we’ve been building a community for 150 years. One that connects, creates and cares for each other, no matter the challenge. With a community like this around you, you can dream bigger and reach further.
  • We are driven to make a real difference - To the lives of every student who walks through our doors, and to the communities we help build and are proud to be part of. We are one of Australia’s oldest universities, known today for our modern approach to teaching and learning. For 150 years we have been reaching out to new communities, steadily building a generation of independent thinkers united in the knowledge that they are greater together.   


Federation University Australia facilitates regionally relevant and internationally recognised world-class research activity in a number of key focus areas. Our research has a  measurable impact on the communities in which we are located and wider society. 


  • Federation University Australia is an equal opportunity employer that values diversity and inclusion.
