CSU Regional Archives and University Art Collection

CSU Regional Archives and University Art Collection is a combined-function repository on the South Campus of Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga.

We have been collecting archival material from the Riverina and Murray regions since 1973 and the Archive Collection now extends to over 4500 linear metres. The Art Collection has been officially curated since 1996, which brought together a quality collection of twentieth century Australian artworks from the University's many precursor institutions. Much of the Art Collection is currently on display throughout the University's campuses.

Whilst we serve the University, its staff and students, our collections and advice are also available to the general public. We welcome anyone with an interest in art and regional history to visit our Search Room or contact one of our staff.
