The campus experience
At UOW, our campus experience is designed for the needs of our students.
By spending your time in class, joining a club or seeing a gig at the UniBar, you ultimately become part of one big community of learning.
As a student, you’ll soon come to know our resident ducks, where to find the best coffee and how to navigate around campus. You’ll see UOW’s five-star educational experience for yourself.
UOW received the top rating across seven categories in the 2017 edition of The Good Universities Guide, including for student experience and retention.
This is why our students are among the happiest and the most satisfied. Grab some lunch, meet new friends and have fun – that’s your first semester on campus.
Live on campus
In a UOW residence, you will have all the academic and wellbeing support you need right down the hall. The best part is as soon as you get there, you will be provided with an instant community. See: UOW Accommodation
With more than 60 student sporting teams at UOW, from water polo to rugby, we’re as serious about sports as you are. Every year these teams take on new members, including first-years just like you, for lunchtime kick-arounds or national comps. See: UOW Sport
Join the club
Get involved and find like-minded people through UOW’s 120 student clubs and societies. If none of the existing ones take your fancy, it’s easy to start your own. See: UOW Clubs & Societies
You can keep fit in the UOW gym, the Olympic-sized swimming pool, or in any one of 100 group exercise classes a week. Whether you’re hitting books or hitting punching bags, it’s all part of student life at UOW. See: Recreation and Aquatic Centre
See a gig
More than 180 live acts entertain on campus every year, including UOW student musicians on the duck pond lawn and a busy schedule of international acts at the UOW UniBar. See: UniBar
UOW students are spoilt for choice between the eight cafes, the popular UniBar and the IGA supermarket, which are conveniently scattered throughout the campus. See: Where to eat on campus
