This reach has firmly established CQUniversity as one of the largest universities based in regional Australia, with campuses in Adelaide, Brisbane, Bundaberg, Cairns, Emerald, Gladstone, Mackay, Melbourne, Noosa, Perth, Rockhampton, Sydney and Townsville. Along with these campuses the University also operates study centres in Broome, Busselton and Karratha, and delivers programs in Cooma and Geraldton thanks to partnerships with the respective University Centres in those communities.

A renowned research institution and a the benchmark leader for how Universities should engage with their communities, its record of achievement over the past few years is matched only by the ambitious aspirations it has set itself over the coming five years, with a continued expansion of student success, research excellence, social innovation and community engagement firmly in its sights.
