With Charles Sturt himself the first international explorer to visit the site, Wagga Wagga was almost destined to become a home for CSU. The campus is CSU's largest, spanning more than 640 hectares, including a campus farm, equine centre, experimental winery and huge range of technical and industry standard learning and teaching facilities.

Message from the Head of Campus

Welcome to the Wagga Wagga campus of Charles Sturt University, located in the renowned heart of the Riverina.

The origins of the Wagga Wagga campus stretch back to the 1890s when the Wagga Experiment Farm was established in 1892.

The campus has continued to grow and expand since that time to become a vibrant academic community which has become an important part of the social fabric and history of the city of Wagga Wagga.

The relationship between the university and the Wagga Wagga community is clearly evidenced by the rich and engaging relationship which exists between the two. This relationship has continued to be built upon. Recent highlights include the establishment of collaborative partnerships between the university and the NSW Department of Primary Industries and the location on campus of AgriFutures Australia.
