Cheers - CSU Healthy Eating, Entertainment and Retail Services

At Charles Sturt University it’s our nature that makes us great. Charles Sturt campuses have a relaxed, friendly feel you can’t get anywhere else. The open nature of the people and landscape is a huge part of it. We’re not pretentious, we look out for each other, we say hi and have time to chat.

We provide a variety of fresh, healthy meals to keep you going. Our outlets on campus only accept contactless payment methods, not cash (with the exception of our Australia Post outlets).

During Intensive (Residential) schools check our changes in trading hours.
