With more than 7,000 international students studying at our Australian locations, Curtin offers a unique cross-cultural experience. Socially and academically, you will become part of a network that has extremely diverse interests, languages and beliefs.
The diversity of faiths on campus is supported by our Multi-Faith Services, provided by a qualified team that is able to meet your spiritual needs in meaningful and practical ways.
Know you are always supported with Curtin’s comprehensive range of health and wellbeing services available to staff and students.
The health and wellbeing of our staff and students is important. Curtin’s counselling services team is available to provide confidential help and support with any work or study-related issue.

Student Wellbeing Advisory Services
If you are struggling with a personal issue or having difficulty settling into university life, an Advisor at the Student Wellbeing Advisory Services can assist by listening and offering helpful, confidential advice and assistance. You are never alone on campus and no matter what the problem, talking to someone can help you to find a solution.
Several services for campus and online users with a disability are facilitated by the Counselling and Disability Services team. There are multiple services available for students, as well as staff who provide advice and support to students. Visitors to campus can also find information about available access services from the team.
The University has developed the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP), which aims to improve access to education. The principles of Universal Design are part of the foundation for the DAIP and the plan outlines strategies for developing an accessible and inclusive environment for staff, students and visitors with disabilities.
Alongside the DAIP are several initiatives, resources and services for people with disabilities to improve access across campus to both physical environment, as well as learning and development opportunities.
The Curtin Student Guild is responsible for some of our biggest social events, with events like the Beach Bash becoming part of Curtin folklore, but there’s much more to the Guild than partying.
The Guild plays a vital role in representing the interests of students by providing educational, commercial and social services to its members. The Guild is your voice on campus. It represents all students on the University boards and committees.
All profits made from Guild catering, retail, events and membership are put back into student programs, student experiences and capital investments on campus.
The Guild supports a variety of clubs on campus. With over 70 clubs currently active, there’s sure to be something that interests you.
The Guild also runs Student Assist, a confidential welfare, advocacy, support and referral service to assist all students with any personal, welfare or academic issue that they may have.
Discounts for Guild members
The Guild operates many services on campus, including cafes and cafeterias, a tavern and bistro, second-hand bookshop, Curtin Concept Store and the Copy & Design Centre. Full Guild members receive discounts at all Guild operated retail and food outlets as well as at over forty businesses across the Perth metro area and beyond.
