South West Central

South West Central coming soon to Warrnambool campus

With the new Warrnambool Learning and Library Centre opening soon, we will be transforming the current SWTAFE Library and HIVE into South West Central - the new student services and supports centre.

South West Central will provide a single point of contact for student support and service enquiries. With someone always there to help and connect you to SWTAFE services and supports.

Services and supports at other campuses will continue as they are:


As we prepare for South West Central the current SWTAFE Library and HIVE space will be closed from Monday 29 August.
