ANU 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 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 $220M Science Precinct which opened in 2014.

Our academic staff are world leaders in their fields. They don’t teach from textbooks, they write them. They lead scientific discoveries, make technological advances and unearth our secret histories.  

ANU is known for its high staff-to-student ratio, so you will get to know your teachers and they will get to know you too.
