Message from the Head of Campus
Welcome to the Orange campus of Charles Sturt University, nestled in the shadow of Mount Canobolas, in the historical town with a reputation for acclaimed cool climate wines and impressive colonial buildings.
The genesis of the Orange campus was as the Orange Agricultural College established in 1973 and originally part of the University of New England and then part of the University of Sydney, before being transferred to ownership by Charles Sturt University in 2005.
The Orange campus hosts a large vineyard and farm prides itself on its state-of-the-art facilities, including an award winning health building.
The campus offers a range of courses within the Faculty of Science, from agricultural and wine sciences, community health, dentistry, nursing, midwifery and indigenous health.
