Alice Springs campus

The multi-sector campus includes a modern 85-seat lecture theatre, specialist IT classrooms, a clinical training laboratory for nursing and a science laboratory for Higher Education. The dedicated Higher Education Building offers a hub of resources for more than 30 staff and 190 undergraduate, postgraduate and research students, some of whom work collaboratively with research and brokerage institution Desert Knowledge Australia. It includes multi-media equipped lecture theatres, class, and tutorial and research rooms.  

A Trades Skills Centre has been built at the Alice Springs campus to provide resources and facilities to support VET training in the plumbing and construction industries. These modern facilities provide state of the art equipment, expanding the opportunities of students to undertake trades skills and apprenticeship training locally. 


VET in Schools training is provided to Alice Springs’ five high schools and many secondary schools in remote communities, who are able to utilise all of these excellent facilities. 

The campus is also home to an outstanding library, including the electronic Learning Resource Centre, a new Specialist Training Hub, and extensive facilities for tourism and hospitality students, including the multi-Brolga Award-winning Desert Lantern Restaurant.  

The Central Australian Research Group (CARG) is based at Alice Springs campus. Its vision is to maximise the research capacity resident in Alice Springs. 

CDU is a leader in regional and remote education delivery, and the offices of the CDU Regional Directorate are located in Alice Springs, servicing all of the regional campuses and centres throughout the Northern Territory.
