Campuses

Casuarina

Located in Darwin's northern suburbs, Casuarina is CDU's largest campus. Starting out as the site for the Darwin Community College, Casuarina campus has grown and evolved to what it is today.

Palmerston

Palmerston campus is set in tropical bushland within walking distance from the Palmerston city centre.

Darwin Waterfront

Located next to Darwin Harbour, CDU Waterfront is home to the Asia Pacific College of Business and Law built with the commitment to foster connections with businesses across Darwin's Central Business District.

Alice Springs

CDU's Alice Springs campus is a major educational hub catering for domestic and international students in the town and in Central Australia’s remote communities. The dual-sector campus provides higher education, research and vocational studies in a modern and well-resourced environment on site and is the base for extensive training for other communities in the Northern Territory.

Sydney

Study in the heart of Sydney's Central Business District and immerse yourself in one of the world’s most dynamic, vibrant and multicultural cities.

CDU Sydney campus offers state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities, small class sizes, and easy access to teaching staff to ensure the best academic results possible.

Student lifestyle

There is something for everyone at CDU, and student life can be whatever you make it. You can feel confident in knowing whatever your journey or interests may be, you can find camaraderie, support and friendship through the many social, cultural and personal development programs on offer through the University and within the wider community.

Get involved

Social networking is a part of life for many people. Connecting with other students can provide friendship and support, as well as a way of managing the stress of completing assignments and exams. Students located in the Darwin region can make life-long social and professional connections through some of CDU’s associations, clubs and societies, or the student ambassador program.

Build relationships

Take the time to build relationships with staff and other students; having good relationships with your lecturers is one of the best ways to get the most of your university experience.

Making friends at university will not only create enjoyable shared experiences, but these members of your support network can also help improve your academic performance. Your friends are your study buddies who keep you accountable and on track with your studies. Try finding someone in one of your classes to work on an assignment with and turn it into a regular study group.

Volunteering

Volunteering is a great way to use your skills, give back to your community, and meet new people. There are many opportunities to volunteer your time, either through a student association or in the greater community.

Exchange and short-term programs

Participating in an overseas program is one of the best experiences you can have at university. You can spend as little as one week, or as long as one year in destinations around the world. We offer a trimester or year-long exchange program, as well as short-term options including global internships, volunteering, service learning, academic-led study tours, clinical placements and research practicums.
