Curtin is an innovative Australian university that has become truly global. In addition to our largest campus in Perth, Curtin University has campuses in regional Western Australia, Malaysia, Mauritius, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates. Of our 56,000 students, around a quarter come from countries other than Australia, making for a vibrant, culturally-enriched student community. Our vast alumni network now totals more than 220,000 individuals worldwide.
Our campuses are fun and lively places where you can not only study but also improve your communication skills, become involved in community projects and make life-long friends.
At Curtin we respect and support all students, including those from varying cultures and religions, as well as people with disabilities, and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex community.
To help you explore and practise the religious faith of your choice, our Perth campus has a multi-faith services team as well as prayer rooms that are reserved for spiritual or religious purposes.
Finding accommodation in Perth is easy with the help from Curtin’s housing services. A number of on- and off-campus accommodation options are available for international students.
Priority for on-campus accommodation is given to students who are new to Perth. All on-campus accommodation is self-catering and fully furnished, consisting of single-study bedrooms with shared facilities, such as kitchens and bathrooms.
There is also the option to live in a share house, boarding arrangement or a single rental off campus.
The Curtin Student Guild is student-run and represents student interests on university boards and committees. It offers social and welfare services, and lots of extra-curricular activities, such as the Guild Ball, tavern shows, multicultural week and market days.
Curtin Stadium is the home of sport, fitness, recreation and events on the Perth campus, with a main gym, women’s gym, large group fitness area, indoor cycling studio, sports hall and multi-purpose courts available for hire. There are many registered and affiliated sports clubs catering for all levels of skill and experience.
Food choices at the Perth campus include cafés (two of which offer Halal food) and a tavern that regularly stages live music. Pop-up food trucks in campus hotspots offer food from around the world.
