Southern Cross University is a multi-campus university on Australia’s east coast. We are proud of our reputation as a progressive institution, engaging with the communities we serve to create change that has an impact around the world.
Our campuses are located in southeast Queensland adjacent to the Gold Coast Airport, in New South Wales at Lismore and in Coffs Harbour, where the University’s National Marine Science Centre is also located. Branch campuses in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth operate in collaboration with EduCo and the University operates The Hotel School Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in partnership with Mulpha Australia. We also deliver degrees with collaborators in China and Papua New Guinea.
The regions we call home all have unique characteristics as study locations – from cosmopolitan cities, thriving industries and coastal lifestyles to living laboratories of great natural beauty and ecological diversity, right next to the campus.
Our locations have a profound influence on our teaching and academic programs, from business degrees that examine ecological tourism to marine science that is helping to regenerate the reef and engineering to make our urban environments smarter and more sustainable. We celebrate our cultural diversity with a festival every year because it is the diversity that makes us bold, and pushes us to challenge the status quo.
