 The University of Canberra is Australia`s capital University our role is to serve Canberra, its surrounding communities and its partners through education and research. In doing so, we reflect the different dimensions of Canberra:

    • the nation`s capital and the international implications of that status
    • the seat of government and public administration
    • the home of national cultural, scientific and sporting institutions
    • a symbol of Australian identity
    • a designed and landscaped city and
    • a local community committed to a sustainable, educated, healthy, prosperous life.


We share many features of other high quality universities, but the way we reflect the dimensions of a unique city differentiates us from all other Australian universities.
