High Schools Access Program

The Southern Cross University Library welcomes senior secondary students to use our spaces and to borrow from our collections.  The School Access Program offers secondary students in Years 10, 11 and 12 the opportunity to join and use the Library at our Lismore and Gold Coast campuses. So while you are working on your school assignments, studying hard for HSC or just looking for a good book to read, save yourself some research time and head to the Library at one of Southern Cross University's campuses.
