We're Australia's largest regional university

We understand the importance of Australia’s regional communities – because we call them home. For more than a century, we've championed those communities, starting with the Bathurst Experimental Farm in 1895. Now, we thrive in the heart of NSW's most vibrant regional cities – and beyond.

Because we see distance as an opportunity to connect, to share what we've learned from our unique regional experience. And our alumni, researchers and industry partners use that experience to foster knowledge, drive positive change, and fuel growth all over the world.
