We count six Nobel Prize winners and two prime ministers among our alumni and staff.

What’s more, as an ANU student, you’ll engage with industry and government leaders through internships, access world-class international student exchange programs and join a range of vibrant cultural, sporting and social activities.

Broaden your ANU experience further by choosing to live on campus in one of our catered or self-catered student residences. As well as having Canberra’s CBD, your classes, libraries, gyms and much more on your doorstep, your residence will put you at the heart of our world-class campus community. If you’re leaving home to come to ANU and going to university for the first time, you may even be eligible for our accommodation guarantee.

While you’re transitioning to and embracing life at Australia’s only national university, we’ll support your safety and wellbeing 24/7.
