Campuses & Education Centres


The Janet Cosh Herbarium is a repository for plant specimens collected from the Sydney, Illawarra, South Coast and Southern Tablelands of New South Wales. The specimens are recorded in a database and stored in a controlled environment. The herbarium provides information on the taxonomy, history, distribution and conservation of plant species within these regions.

Professor Howard Worner, an eminent metallurgist and scientist donated his collection of approximately 1000 mineral and rock specimens, together with his medals and awards, his mineral-collecting gear and a copy of the first edition of his book "Minerals of Broken Hill" to the University of Wollongong in 2000. These are on permanent display in the foyer of the Sciences Building (Building 41) of the Wollongong Campus.

The University of Wollongong Art Collection comprises over 1,100 individual works located throughout the campus. The collection includes paintings, prints, ceramics, textiles and sculptures by eminent Australian artists such as Lloyd Rees, Arthur Boyd, Judy Watson and Emily Kngwarreye. The collection also includes a significant number of sculptures located externally throughout the University grounds. The collection offers students, staff and visitors the opportunity to interact, enjoy and appreciate artwork placed in their social and working environments.
