A university for Blacktown

Thousands of students in Western Sydney will soon have access to a new university campus in Blacktown City!

In March 2019, we announced that we will partner with Australian Catholic University (ACU) to build a university campus in the Blacktown CBD, right next to Blacktown train station!

In October 2019, ACU and Council formally ratified their partnership. ACU Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Greg Craven and Blacktown City Mayor Tony Bleasdale, OAM signed a “Heads of Agreement” at the Blacktown Administration Centre.

The agreement officially seals collaboration between the two that will see the development of a Blacktown CBD university campus and a clear path to a university for the 18,000 students who live in Blacktown City. 

ACU will open a Future Students Information Centre at 22 Main Street in August 2020 and the first student enrolments – in courses for degree and Executive Education - from February 2021.
