  • I haven’t received a confirmation email; how can I check I’m booked in for online Open Day?

    Please check you Junk email folder; our email might be sitting in there! Then search for the Open Day team.

    If you have any queries, email the Open Day team at studentevents@csu.edu.au.

    You can access the event from any smartphone or device. Just make sure you have a strong internet connection.

    Absolutely! You can book to join us this September for our Open Day Campus Exploration. Come along to check out our campus, the state-of-the-art facilities and accommodation.

Get yourself prepped

Here are a few tips to help get you ready for your university Open Day.

On-campus Open Day

  • Do I have to register to attend Open Day 2021 or can I just turn up on the day?

    Everyone attending Open Day will have to register. Getting in early and registering before the event means you can best plan your Open Day experience and secure your spot for the sessions you’d like to attend.

    To keep you safe, each session and tour will have limited places available, though many of our sessions and tours will run at numerous times during Open Day. If your preferred spot is fully booked, make sure you check out other time slots.

    We will also be taking registrations on the day and everyone will have to check-in on arrival. We are taking this precaution as part of our COVID Safe event plan and to ensure we’re following government guidelines.

  • Do I need to book in for Open Day information sessions?

    Planning your Open Day is super easy! Hop online to select what info sessions you’d like to attend and the tours you’d like to take. Remember to get in quick because info sessions and tours will have limited places available – make sure you secure your spot.

  • Do my friends and family who are coming along have to register?

    You can bring parents, carers, friends, teachers – whoever you like – to Open Day!

    If you’re planning to bring family or friends – and they’re over 15 years of age – make sure they register separately. Due to social distancing requirements, only people who have booked for each info session and/or tour will be allowed in.

    Want to go to a different session to your parent/friend/child? Just select your own sessions and tours when you register.

    If you’re bringing young children, select the ‘dependents’ option when you register for Open Day – because we have to count everyone who’ll be joining us for the day.

  • I’ve registered to attend Open Day, but haven’t received a confirmation email. What should I do?

    First up, check your email Junk box – it might have snuck in there! Still can't find it? Send us an email (infoevents@csu.edu.au) and we’ll resend your registration information.

  • I’m in Years 9, 10 or 11. Can I come to Open Day?

    Absolutely! It’s never too early to visit us and explore what’s possible at Charles Sturt. And we can give you advice about how to make the most of high school to get you into your ideal course.

  • What are you doing to keep attendees safe in terms of COVID-19?

    Your safety is our number one priority. We’re taking all appropriate measures to keep our prospective students, their families and our community and staff safe. These include adhering to safe hygiene practices, encouraging social distancing, regular cleaning, staggered timings for pre-booked information sessions and tours, and monitoring numbers in communal areas.

  • What should I wear?

    Comfy clothes – but remember to dress for the weather and also wear comfy shoes if you’re going on a tour. And if you’re planning on doing a tour of our laboratories, you’ll need closed-in shoes.

  • Will my photo be taken?

    We’ll have photographers and videographers on campus capturing all the fun of the day – so there’s a chance you might be snapped. Make sure you let us know at the welcome tent if you don’t want your photo taken.

  • I have access requirements. Is Open Day accessible for me?

    Definitely. All of our buildings are accessible by ramps, and accessible toilets will also be marked on our maps. If you need extra assistance on the day, our friendly team will be happy to help.

  • What time should I arrive?

    Your Open Day kicks off at 10am. That’s when you can wander around the displays and community stalls, get involved in the activities, or tuck into some food. If you’ve signed on for an info session or campus tour that starts at 10am, it’s a good idea to arrive at 9.45am. (Check your program – in the confirmation email – to see what time you’re booked into sessions and tours.)

  • Where do I go when I arrive?

    When you arrive on campus, head towards the welcome tent. There will be heaps of signs, so you won’t miss it. First up – make sure you scan the NSW Government’s QR code!

  • I can’t make it to Open Day. What are my options?

    We’d love to welcome you on campus! Just book a campus tour for any day of the working week – or you can jump online and book a virtual consult with one of our friendly student advisers.

Can we help you find what you’re looking for?
