About our student associations

Our student associations are the lifeblood of ACU Student Life. They are run for students, by students and ensure that your voice is heard at the highest levels of the university.

There are three types of student association at ACU:

  • ACU National Student Association (ACUNSA)
  • ACU Postgraduate Student Association (ACUPGA)
  • local campus associations.

Each of these groups has a particular role in supporting and representing our student bodies.

These groups also have one thing in common: they all rely on students getting involved and working to make the ACU experience great for everyone.

Getting involved with a student association will help you develop leadership skills, build important networks and bring people together.

Campus Student Associations

Each of our campuses has a local student association that is committed to enhancing your time at university. These associations organise social events, represent their student bodies at a range of forums, and work with ACU to enrich your day-to-day experience.
