When you ask most people they say that their university years were the best years of their life. And here at the University of Canberra, we think that’s exactly the way it should be. Set in a native haven of clean air, tall trees and huge expanses of lawn, you’ll enjoy the company of Australian wildlife including parrots, cockatoos and even resident kangaroos. Despite its peaceful setting, the campus is an exciting and inspiring place to be.
While study will always remain your priority,there are plenty of opportunities to socialise with your fellow students. There are concerts including our famous music festival Groovin’ the Moo, market days, dinners and different sorts of theatre from all over the world.
There are also a number of clubs and societies you’re welcome to join. These range from social to cultural and are a great way to meet others who share your interests
If you like to keep fit there’s a sports and fitness centre that includes a gymnasium as well as squash, basketball, volleyball and tennis courts, plus ovals for all football codes. Our interest in sport doesn’t stop there either. As well as enjoying a close relationship with the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS), we’re partners with the Brumbies rugby team, the Canberra Capitals basketball team and the Canberra United women’s soccer team. When it comes time to unwind and relax with friends, you won’t have to travel far at all. There are bars, coffee shops and restaurants all right here on campus.
