The National Conference is the premier event in the NAAUC Calendar. Each year our conference attracts delegates from across Australia with the aim to inspire and empower students to create positive change in their residential communities. As a delegate, attendees are actively challenged and encouraged to learn, discuss and reflect on the key issues facing those living on campus in tertiary residences. This covers a range of topics, including student wellbeing, diversity and media presence.

Through the week, attendees are audience to inspirational guest speakers, interactive workshops and seminars, and panel discussions, involving professionals with a variety of expertise in fields relevant to the industry. Furthermore, conference includes an innovative social program. The events that comprise this demonstrate fundamental concepts covered, modelling activities that are both inclusive and entertaining.


NAAUC offers a conference for staff of residential communities, with the 'Heads and Residential Coordinators' Conference running concurrently with the National Conference. The HRC conference is comprised of academic sessions organised by the NAAUC Team and are attended by both staff and students. HRC delegates also attend guest speaker lectures, and panels that are comprised of industry professionals. The NAAUC HRC conference allows staff to meet and forge connections with both students from around the country and other university residence staff. Inclusive of the conference is a social program that runs in the evening.
