Australian National University, Canberra

The Australian National University is a public university in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory. Located in the suburb of Acton, the main campus encompasses seven teaching and research colleges, in addition to several national institutes.




During the school year the majority of the student residences are full with long-term residents and cannot offer short term accommodation, but over summer (i.e. late November through to early February), some colleges will offer accommodation on a casual basis.
