Student life

It’s the time you spend outside of the classroom that helps make your university experience. Our campuses offer services designed to help you succeed, and a range of recreational pursuits so you can unwind when it’s time for a study break. 

We celebrate your success

ACU student life

Don’t get lost in the crowd. At ACU, you’ll be able to develop rich, rewarding partnerships with the people guiding your learning. And we’ll work hard to ensure that, when you graduate, you’re ready for your next step. 

Experience uni before you start

Transition smoothly into student life by getting a taste of ACU ahead of time. Come to Open Day, register for an information session, or sign up for our university experience day and attend workshops related to your chosen degree.
