Community is the heart of our University

UOW traces its origins to a community fundraising campaign more than half a century ago that provided the foundations for a small technical-based institution to grow into the world-class institution it is today.

So it stands to reason that the University has maintained a close connection with the community of the Illawarra and South Coast of NSW ever since.

While UOW is proudly international in our outlook, we arguably have never been more connected to our home community, through our Wollongong and Innovation Campus in Wollongong and our facilities in the Shoalhaven, Batemans Bay, Bega, Southern Highlands, Southern Sydney, South Western Sydney and the Sydney CBD.
