Why Orange?

We’re living our best life at Charles Sturt University Orange. And you can too!

A stone’s throw from Bathurst and just a three-hour drive to Sydney, Orange is in perfect proximity for that country-city balance. Enjoy the charm of the country during the week, and when you need some down-time from study, jump in the car and head to the big smoke for the weekend. Or stay in Orange. Honest, once you set up digs in this place there’s no need to leave.

On top of that, studying at uni needs the right atmosphere, yeah? If you’re a foodie (who isn’t?) with an appreciation for breathtaking scenery (aka top shelf Insta inspo), Orange will tick all your boxes for the right city to study in.

Want to check it out for yourself? Open Day is your chance.
