Federation University Australia, Berwick campus
Coordinates: Federation University Australia, Berwick Campus is a campus of Federation University Australia located in Berwick, which is a suburb of Melbourne, Australia, in the state of Victoria. It offers degrees in Business and Commerce, Nursing and Education.
It is situated in the City of Casey, one of Australia's fastest growing areas with approximately 2000 students attending the Campus. The campus opened in 1996. It is small in comparison to other campuses, covering an area of only 55 hectares. A student accommodation building was completed in 2006 to stabilise the demand generated by both local and the vast number of international students. Faculties have come and gone over the years and now the Faculty of Education holds the majority of students on campus.
The campus celebrated its 10th anniversary on 29 April 2006.
On 7 March 2016 Monash announced that it would be closing the Berwick campus by 2018. On 15 July 2016 it was announced that Federation University Australia would take responsibility for the Berwick Campus from 2017 pending government approvals. This officially commenced on 1 January 2018, as a campus of Federation University Australia.
