Study on campus


It won’t take you long to feel at home at CDU, with Orientation Week giving you the chance to find out more about the campus you will be studying at and how to get around.

Held the week before teaching starts, orientation provides all the information you need to know regarding CDU services, facilities and support staff. It's also an opportunity to meet other new students through organised social events.

Places to meet

Casuarina campus has plenty of places to meet, including the coffee shop, cafeteria and a bar.

There are barbecue facilities in the Balinese-inspired Student Square, while the Chinese and Indonesian Gardens are perfect for a picnic or a stroll.

If you feel like heading off campus for a night out, a short bus trip will take you into Darwin’s CBD where you will find restaurants, cafes and the bar scene.

Services and facilities

Do you enjoy a game of tennis in the morning, followed by a coffee at a cafe nearby? Or maybe some quiet time in a tranquil space?
