Arrival assistance

As part of our personalised welcome service, a CSU International Student Liaison Officer (ISLO) or CSU Representative will meet you on arrival in the city where you have chosen to study.

Arriving at a CSU campus

At least one week prior to your arrival complete and submit the online arrival form (using your CSU username and password). Without sufficient notice your International Student Liaison Officer (ISLO) will not be able to arrange for you to be met upon arrival.

International Student Arrival Form

Once you have confirmed your travel details you need to contact your International Student Liaison Officer (ISLO).

Sydney airport

When you arrive by plane in Sydney, you will enter Australia through the International Terminal (T1). You will then need to take a connecting domestic flight to your CSU campus city. Flights depart from the Domestic Terminal T3 or T2, depending on which airline you take. You can fly direct from Sydney to your specific regional campus city with either QantasLink, REX (Regional Express) or Virgin Australia (for Albury-Wodonga only). The flights to our regional campus cities will take a maximum of one hour.

Please note: it may take a couple of hours to clear customs and immigration at the International Terminal (if you arrive at a busy time), so when booking connecting domestic flights make sure you give yourself enough time. If you are unsure please discuss this with your International Student Liaison Officer (ISLO) prior to confirming your flight bookings.

Travelling to your campus

A CSU representative will welcome you on your arrival in Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst, Orange, Port Macquarie or Wagga Wagga and transport you to your accommodation. If you arrange for a friend or relative to meet you instead, please advise your ISLO.

This service starts at least a week before the Orientation Week and continues up to the last day of the first week of classes. The pickup times are restricted to between 8am and 8pm. Please refer to the dates appropriate to your session commencement.
