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.

As a result of Charles Sturt's active response to the COVID-19 outbreak and Federal Government restrictions, our outlets are still open but we have made  few changes to keep everyone safe.

Please follow social distancing measures when you place your order and use contactless payment methods, not cash.

During Residential schools check our changes in trading hours.
