The Place To Work


Wollongong Aerial Banner

Wollongong is an excellent working environment for many of the same reasons it’s a great place to live: a winning lifestyle, with all the support a family needs and opportunity to grow. It’s also rapidly transforming its economic base, which means new enterprises and new opportunities.

A Full Service City for Your Family

In Wollongong, you'll find everything you'd expect of a major regional centre, including a wide choice of schools and child care, quality healthcare, a vibrant arts and entertainment scene and accommodation to match your specific needs.

Support for new UOW employees

UOW offers new staff support ranging from tips for moving into your new home to relocation assistance for eligible candidates.  

Our local knowledge and links with industry can also help other members of your family find work in the region—including in Sydney, which is an easy and popular commute for many workers living around Wollongong.

Easy access

Wollongong is on major road and rail transport lines, linking us with nearby towns including Sydney just over an hour to the north.

The University has also entered a partnership to create serviced virtual offices at the UOW Innovation Campus, creating new opportunities for people to live local and telecommute to jobs in Sydney and elsewhere.
