Support on campus

When you choose to live and study at CSU, you'll join a supportive and welcoming community.

When you choose to live and study at CSU, you'll join a supportive and welcoming community dedicated to helping you succeed. Our Residential Support Scheme is designed to make sure you get the most out of your CSU experience professionally, personally and socially. Because while we're proud of the outstanding academic and professional achievements of our students and alumni, we also think your uni years should be fun.

Residential Advisers

Our Residential Advisers (RAs) are senior students who live on campus. They've 'been there, done that', and they're here to help. RAs are trained by internal and external experts on the challenges students can face, and back it up with their own experience. If you need to know where to file an assignment, who to ask about enrolling in your next semester, or just how to make a decent spaghetti bolognaise, your RA is your first port of call.

RAs are also your first contact for the day-to-day questions. They distribute information about residential matters and all have a First Aid Certificate to attend to minor emergencies. They're also equipped with specialist training to refer you to appropriate services both on and off campus if you ever need them.

Other support

Besides the RAs at each campus, you also have the following options for support.

Head Residents are senior students experienced in working with young adults. They are responsible for the support and supervision of a group of RAs, and are available for support and guidance for students when required.

Residential Tutors are students responsible for academic engagement within the Halls of Residence community.

Managers (Residential Operations) are full-time professionals who manage the support scheme at each major campus.

Residence Life Coordinators (Albury, Bathurst, Dubbo, Orange, Port Macquarie, and Wagga Wagga) assist the Managers in the areas of residential support and operations.
