The Australian National University is a world-leading university in Australia's capital city, Canberra. ANU's location points to its unique history, its ties to the Australian Government and its special standing as a resource for the Australian people. ANU's focus on excellence in research and education ensures graduates are in demand the world-over and are well-prepared to address complex contemporary challenges. ANU has seven academic colleges that house a number of schools and research centres that specialise in a range of disciplines. 

ANU's Acton campus is in the heart of Canberra - Australia's capital city - in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). From here it's an easy walk, bike ride or drive to some of Australia's most significant political and cultural institutions including the Australian Parliament House. There are eight buildings or complexes of buildings currently listed on the Commonwealth Heritage List (CHL) and following the ANU Heritage Study (2012) over 60 more buildings/complexes have been identified as meeting the threshold for listing on the Commonwealth Heritage List.
