We're Here To Help

At The College, we're dedicated to your success and offer a range of student support networks to ensure you get the education you deserve.

Student Services

Navigating around The College for the first time can be a bit overwhelming, especially with things like enrolment, choosing a timetable and working out where your classes are, so thankfully we have an excellent Student Services Team to help you. Located at Student Central, the friendly crew are willing to go above and beyond to ensure even the smallest queries have been answered. 

The Student Services phone number has now changed to the Student Central Infoline - 1300 668 370. Please call this number and choose option three.

The Student Services teams on Bankstown and Penrith (Kingswood) campuses have relocated and can be found in the main Student Central office:

  • Bankstown Student Central - Building 1
  • Penrith (Kingswood) Student Central - Building K, Room 1.16
