Coffs Harbour facilities

Opened in 2019, the Health Sciences Building at Southern Cross University's Coffs Harbour campus features advanced laboratories and teaching spaces.  It also continues the University's mission to deliver relevant facilities, resources and programs that respond to the needs of today and tomorrow.

The campus is centred by the open-air Gathering Space and includes eateries and cafés, the library, Student Services, individual and group study spaces, a recreation hall and fitness centre.

Learning opportunities also extend beyond the campus. For example, Coffs Harbour is a thriving tourism destination and our business and tourism students are able to combine their on-campus studies with real-life experience via internships with local resorts, hotels and tourist attractions.

For our marine science students at the National Marine Science Centre, proximity to the Solitary Islands Marine Park provides an ideal and truly spectacular learning environment.
