A campus is the physical location from where a course or program of study is delivered. For on‑line/ distance education courses this is the location from where the course is administered. While some studies may require a student's attendance at locations such as a health centre, teaching hospital or agricultural farm, these are not campuses in the common understanding of a campus. In these circumstances, the student load should be reported against the campus from where these studies are administered.
