Regional University Centres Network

Connecting Regional University Centres to better support tertiary students in regional, rural and remote Australia

Welcome to the Regional University Centres (RUC) Network. RUCs help students in regional, rural and remote areas of Australia participate and succeed in tertiary education through the provision of support and facilities. The RUC Network connects the people working in RUCs nationwide.

Celebrating the work of RUCs

RUCs reflect the diversity of Australia’s people and places. RUCs are embedded within their communities and support successful tertiary outcomes for local students. This video of photos from RUCs across the country celebrates this diversity and success.

I love my RUC — the quiet study spaces and being with other students and staff.
