Acknowledgement of country

Batchelor Institute would like to acknowledge and pay respect to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander sovereign people of the lands on which our campuses are located. As we share our knowledge, teaching and learning and engage in research practices within this Institution and/or conduct business with a variety of external agencies and organisations, we must always pay respect to the sovereign status of our hosts. May their Ancestors always be remembered and honoured, their Elders listened to and respected, all members treated with dignity and fairness — in the present and well into the future.

We also acknowledge and pay respect to the knowledge embedded forever with our hosts, custodianship of country and the binding relationship they have with the land. Batchelor Institute extends this acknowledgment and expression of respect to all sovereign custodians — past, present and emerging. By expressing Acknowledgement of Country we encourage all to extend and practice respect to all First Nations people wherever their lands are located.

Alcohol and Drugs

At our residential campuses we provide a safe, no-alcohol environment to support you in your learning journey.

In accordance with clear and consistent messages from your communities, the Institute Council has ruled that alcohol and other drugs may not be brought into, or consumed within, Institute facilities, including the student and staff residences. This rule applies to all Institute facilities including Institute vehicles.

Non-smoking areas

Smoking is not allowed in any lecture rooms, administrative buildings, or in any Institute vehicles.


You will be issued with keys to your accommodation on arrival at the Institute. They can be returned to one of the Residential Supervisors or placed in the key box located at the front of the residential office. Note: If you lose your keys, you will be charged $10.00 for a replacement.


Residential blocks are cleaned prior to arrival and on departure with common areas and toilets cleaned daily. While on campus you are responsible for the cleaning of your bedroom and any other area with personal items. Washing machines are to be left clean and ready for the next person to use (Laundry detergent, personal hygiene products, snack food and stationery can be purchased at SRC cafe or the Batchelor store). Cleaning gear is located in the cupboard above the kitchen sink. To refill your empty cleaning agent bottles, bring them to the residential office.


Bins in the shared common areas are emptied daily (Mon- Fri). Duplexes and triplexes have a wheelie bin on the verandah for residents to empty internal bins into during their stay. If there are any problems please advise the Residential Supervisors.


Report all maintenance problems directly to a Residential Supervisor.


Students’ vehicles are to be parked in the car parks provided near the accommodation blocks. Vehicles must not be parked on the lawn alongside the accommodation or driven on to the grassed areas.

Childcare Facilities

CSSU Yera Childcare Centre caters for children from 0–5 years old. They also provide an After School Care Program for children up to the age of 12 and a pre-school pick up service. The child care is available from 7.45am to 4.30pm on weekdays.

You need to get your own luggage to the residential office on the day you are departing from the campus. If you require assistance you should contact the Residental Supervisors. The Institute will not be responsible for storing your luggage.

Make sure that your room is clean, fans, air-conditioner and lights are switched off and that the room key is returned to a Residential Supervisor or placed in the key box located outside the residential office. If you are departing early by private vehicle, please let a Residential Supervisor know so that the room you are leaving can be prepared for further bookings.

Changing rooms: If you want to move from the room that has been allocated to you please speak to the Residential Manager. Every attempt will be made to accommodate students appropriately. However, at times due to high occupancy rates, not all requests may be met.

There are serious fines for lighting fires anywhere in the Northern Territory without a permit. During the dry season in the Top End there is often a Total Fire Ban declared and you must not light fires anywhere. Please check with the Student Support and Counselling Unit before using the designated fire pit.
