CDU Wellness Centre
CDU Fitness Hub

CDU Vice-Chancellor, Professor Scott Bowman and the College of Health and Human Sciences have worked together to re-open the CDU Fitness Hub (previously known as Gym@CDU).

The facility aims to enhance staff and students' overall health and well-being by providing a cost-effective, professional and safe training environment on the Casuarina campus. This aligns with CDU’s new strategic plan to promote a healthy lifestyle and a better work/study-life balance for both staff and students.

CDU Fitness Hub membership is now open to staff and students of CDU only.
