School Introduction

Shafston was established in 1996 and has grown to be the largest College of its type in Australia with over 50, 000 students having attended since it's inception. The two Shafston campuses are unique, they are both located in the heart of Brisbane. The original Kangaroo Point Campus, which is centred on "Shafston House" a heritage-listed building constructed in 1851 - is located on the banks of the beautiful Brisbane River and covers an area of five-acres.

The purpose-built City Campus was constructed in 2004 and five minutes away in Brisbane’s central business district. These campuses allow our students to enjoy a true university campus experience and atmosphere with beautiful outdoor spaces as well as excellent teaching and learning facilities. Shafston also boasts one of the most diverse student populations in the country.
