An information evening at Alice Springs campus on 18 September will provide prospective students, friends and their families with the opportunity to explore the broad range of programs that CDU offers in Alice Springs.
Charles Darwin University's Alice Springs campus is a major educational hub catering for students in the town and in Central Australia’s remote communities.
VET in Schools is provided to Alice Springs’ five high schools and many secondary schools in remote communities. The dual-sector campus provides higher education, research and vocational studies in a modern and well-resourced environment on site and is the base for extensive training for other communities in the Northern Territory.

The campus is also founded on a strong research culture in areas of Indigenous engagement, health and economics and the environment. The campus services regional communities from northern South Australia through to the Barkly Tablelands with CDU's remotelink playing an important support role.
The campus continues to expand with new accommodation and Community Services facilities due for completion in 2010. Facilties include the Higher Education Building comprising a 75-seat lecture theatre, tutorial, research and general study rooms.
