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 provided at these centres can include:

Visit the CRC website to find your nearest facility, including specific services available to help with your studies.
And remember, if you ever come to Curtin’s Bentley Campus or Kalgoorlie Campus, you’re welcome to use the study facilities available.
