The Australian National University is consistently ranked among the top universities in the world. 

Our ranking and reputation draws students and staff from across Australia and around the globe, creating a vibrant and diverse community where everyone can feel at home. 

Around 5,000 students live on campus in catered or self-catered residential halls and lodges; a much greater proportion than at any other Australian university. 

Both live-in and day students take full advantage of our cafes and bistros for socialising, sport and recreational facilities for a healthy timeout, and of course our state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities.

We continue to future-proof our facilities through renewal and investment. For example, in partnership with the Australian Government, we’ll soon add a National Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Precinct to our $220 million Science Precinct which opened in 2014.
