A supportive community
ANU likes to see every student succeed and reach their potential and provides many support services to help them make the most of their time at university.
Our campus is like a small town with health services, a chemist, banks, shops, places to eat, and plenty to see and do.
We recognise that people come to ANU with diverse backgrounds and under different circumstances. There are many support services to assist transition into university life. These include services for people with young families or those with special access needs, for Indigenous and Torres Straight Islanders or international students.
The ANU student community also gives you the chance to connect through clubs and associations like the ANU Students' Association (ANUSA), the Postgraduate Students' Association (PARSA), or the SIGN Mentoring Program.
One of the best ways to get a taste of what the ANU community has to offer is to come to orientation where everyone comes together to celebrate the beginning of the academic semester.
Once your academic program begins, you might want to take advantage of the services offered by Academic Skills and Learning Centre, Research Student Development Centre or the Information Literacy Program.
The Dean of Students is also available to assist all students with aspects of their academic and personal lives at ANU.
These are just some of the many services available to current students that aim to make your experience challenging, rewarding, and problem-free.
