Campus Life

Your university days will be some of the most exciting and memorable times of your life.

And while our focus will always be on ensuring you succeed in your studies, we also want to give you every opportunity to enjoy the social occasions and friendships that round out the uni experience.

We offer a range of on campus sport and recreational facilities, and there are plenty of social and sporting clubs available for you to join. There's also a full calendar of social events like theme nights, gigs by live bands and get-togethers where you can mix and mingle with your new friends. Take advantage of these fantastic opportunities to broaden your horizons, try something new and watch your social life thrive!


Throughout the University year, our events calendar is busting with fun-filled activities to get you involved in all aspects of uni life. As well as social events and the traditional uni festivities like toga nights and themed balls, there are some key highlights of the CSU year.

Orientation Week will set you up with all the tools and resources you need before you start your study with CSU – rolled into an action-packed week of fun, games and entertainment galore. You'll receive important information about your course and support available to you, and have the opportunity to tour the campus and mix with other students.

Celebrate your place in the CSU community at our annual Foundation Day celebration held in July. Foundation Day is an occasion for past, present and future students to recognise and pay tribute to the establishment of CSU, unite our community and be proud to be a part of this great University.

Clubs and societies

CSU's clubs and societies are a great way to get involved in all kinds of fun activities. Our Clubs Day held at the beginning of Session 1 is your chance to find out about all the clubs on offer at your campus and sign up to the ones that interest you.

There are many types of clubs including:

  • course-based
  • religious groups
  • collectives
  • postgraduate
  • social
  • music, dance or theatre
  • sporting.

If you have a particular interest that's not covered by our existing clubs, you can contact the Student Liaison Officer on your campus to discuss the possibility of starting your own club.

You can get your heart racing on the footy field, hone your ball skills on the netball courts or test yourself with a game of Ultimate Frisbee. There are opportunities to represent CSU at the annual Eastern University Games or at a national level at the Australian University Games.
