This study examined perceptions of university values and culture held by the staff, students and graduates of an Australian university. The study also examined the extent to which staff, students, graduates, and employees and non-employees perceived themselves as fitting in to the University’s values and culture. The extent to which perceived fit and person-culture fit on the basis of congruence between individual and organisational values were related to individuals’ attitudes towards the University as a place to study and a place to work was also examined. The results showed that congruence between perceived university values and ideal university values was positively related to individuals’ attitudes, including their perceived fit with the University’s values and culture, and attitudes toward the University as a place for students to study and a place for people to work.
