University of Canberra Today

The University of Canberra campus is an important part of the life of the National Capital, with strong ties to the community, business and government. A central platform for the future development of the University is the establishment of a 24/7 campus closely connected to the broader community.

Our vision is that the campus will be a compelling and accessible environment that is exciting, stimulating and has a distinctive character. Faculties, University Research Centres, private enterprises and the community will operate in a network of mutually supportive relationships.

The developed campus will bring together professional partners and businesses to provide diverse opportunities for teaching, research and industry. Work-integrated learning, collaborative research, industry and cultural hubs, student placements and adjunct appointments will thrive through such collaborations.

Our intention is to open the University to the world and to bring the world to the University.
