Community resource centres

If you live regionally, many towns have community resource centres (CRCs) where you can access a range of information and services to help with your studies.

CRCs are locally owned and operated, and provide access to equipment and resources that may be otherwise limited in regional areas.

Services available at CRCs

Services provided at these centres can include:

  • access to public computers and the internet to help you enrol in and complete your studies
  • photocopying and printing documents
  • access to videoconferencing facilities
  • training programs and professional development courses to enhance your skills
  • resume and career advice
  • access to information on government services
  • tutoring and exam supervision.

Visit the CRC website to find your nearest facility, including specific services available to help with your studies.

Go to the CRC website

And remember, if you ever come to Curtin’s Bentley Campus or Kalgoorlie Campus, you’re welcome to use the study facilities available.
