The University puts the student learning experience at the centre of its purpose and upholds a student-centred approach to learning.
Our home in Canberra and connection with our neighbouring communities shapes our purpose as a university. Whether it’s fostering innovation, meeting health-care needs, solving environmental challenges or equipping our future leaders, our University is an embodiment of our distinctive city. Canberra is a wonderful place to live, study and work – a safe, connected, multicultural city which boasts great scenery, excellent entertainment and sports venues, a buzzing food scene and a glittering galaxy of cultural institutions.
The University of Canberra has a collaborative, innovative and dynamic research culture, with a focus on producing high-quality and high-impact work that makes an early and significant difference to the world around us.
If you're not sure who can help you or where to go, our Student Welfare Officers are on hand to refer you to services at UC or around Canberra, or they can just be someone to talk to.
They can also provide support with a variety of issues, from financial difficulties, study challenges, finding accommodation, misconduct or grievance resolution, and anything else you may be worried about.
Your accommodation sets the tone for your uni life. Choosing on-campus housing where you will live with lots of others, or finding your own place in Canberra depends on your preference and budget.
At certain times of the year it can be extremely difficult to secure accommodation in Canberra, so it is important you start your search early.
