Student input is being sought to the design of the new Charles Sturt University (CSU) Port Macquarie campus.

The university has been holding workshops including with staff and students.

The estimated $40 million campus will be built in the town's west, off Major Innes Road.

Campus Director Dr Mayesser Durur said consultation is a vital part of the planning process.

"That's a really critical part of what we do, because we want to be informed in the design of the campus," she said.

"It's not every day you get the chance to design something from the ground up.

"So it's exciting, and the feedback has been very, very positive so far."

Design workshops have been held recently and the feedback from them is now being collated.

Dr Durur said students want to see the region's natural beauty incorporated into the design.

"This is a coastal area, and Port Macquarie is a beautiful, picturesque place with all of the sea, the sun and the climate," she said.

"The feedback is we need to be able to reflect the physical of the environment of the region, and create an ambience of openness."
