Our History

In late 2019, the Federal Minister for Education announced that the Federal Government would invest $24.2M to establish 16 regional study hubs and university centres in 22 locations across Australia.

The Pilbara Regional Study Hub Steering Committee was awarded $3M in seed funding to establish a regional universities centre in Karratha and a smaller study hub in Port Hedland.  Additional seed funding of $550,000 was provided from the Pilbara Development Commission and $450,000 from the City of Karratha. 

In mid-2020, our Port Hedland study hub opened at the Web Business Centre and our state of the art, purpose-built Karratha campus was opened at Level 1, the Quarter. Access to high quality tertiary education facilities and support services had finally arrived in the Pilbara!
