The University of Wollongong (UOW) Open Day is the perfect opportunity to visit our amazing Wollongong or Liverpool campuses, speak with our staff and students, and see why UOW is ranked as one of the best universities for student experience.

Whether you are looking at your next steps after Year 12, or you finished school some time ago and are looking for a pathway into university, Open Day is for you.

UOW Open Day also caters to graduates who are considering further study, offering one-on-one consultations with postgraduate course experts. Whatever your education or career goals, our staff are able to answer your questions.

Do you have questions?

Check out the FAQs below

What time should I arrive and where do I go when I get to the campus?


Open Day Wollongong will run from 10 am until 3 pm, so there is plenty of time to experience all UOW has to offer.

We recommend arriving 30 minutes before your first information session or tour.

If you are driving, the best parking will be in our Western Carpark (P4).

If you are catching a train, you will get off at the North Wollongong (NG) train station and head down the stairs of platform one. From there you will be able to catch the free NG Shuttle bus that will take you to our campus (about five minutes). The shuttle bus will drop you at the UOW bus bay on Northfields Avenue.

If you are catching a bus, the bus will drop you at the UOW bus bay on Northfields Avenue.

Follow the signs from the car parks or bus bay to the University Hall, where you can grab your Open Day pack that includes everything you need to make the most of the day.


Open Day Liverpool will run from 11 am until 2 pm.

We recommend arriving 30 minutes before your first information session or tour.

If you are catching a train, the Liverpool train station is only a 4-minute walk from UOW Liverpool campus. It serves Sydney Trains T2 Inner West & Leppington, T3 Bankstown and T5 Cumberland services.

If you are catching a bus, Liverpool boasts one of Sydney’s first rapid bus transit-way systems. The Liverpool bus interchange is also located at the Liverpool train station.

What will happen at Open Day?

We are currently putting the final touches on our Open Day for 2023. 

UOW Open Day will be an in-person event at both our Liverpool campus on 5th July and our Wollongong campus on 5th August, and we look forward to seeing you on campus.

UOW Open Day is your chance to discover everything UOW has to offer. You will be able to attend course presentations, meet academics and current students, go on campus tours and check out our accommodation options. 

Our eateries and cafes will also be open during the day, so you and your family can take a break, grab some lunch and relax around the duck pond or on the McKinnon lawn.


How long do the sessions and tours last? Do I need to book to attend these?

All Open Day activities will start on the hour and will go for 30 minutes, allowing you time to get to your next session.

There are also tours and activities available some will be scheduled for specific times.

While you don't need to book any sessions or tours, we would appreciate it if you took the time to do so, as it will help us manage room capacities.

If you use our system to plan your day, it will help you schedule your time and allocate where you need to be, and where you want to go.

Does Open Day only showcase academic programs or will there be information available on all UOW student services?

UOW Open Day has it all covered.


There will be study area booths staffed by course experts in the Expo hall, plus 100+ info sessions throughout the day covering - not only academic programs - but also Early Admission, Scholarships, Accommodation, High Achiever Programs, and our amazing Study Abroad opportunities.

There will also be a ‘UOW Services Zone’ where you can find out about student services such as the Woolyungah Indigenous Centre, Careers Central, Library services, and more. 

And don't forget to plan for an accommodation tour, check out a few practical demonstrations, and chill out with the games, music, and food available throughout the day. 


There will be course experts ready to chat on-on-one about courses on offer. There will be an Early Admission hub to have all your questions answered, information about about scholarships available to you, entry options info for our pathway programs, and if you're a non-school leaver, staff dedicated to your needs will be available to chat.

There will also be campus tours, and campus activities, entertainment, live music and free food.

I have a disability. Is there anything I need to know about accessing sessions and tours?

At both UOW Liverpool and Wollongong campuses, all lecture theatres and classrooms are accessible by ramps and elevators. UOW staff will be available all day if you need help accessing any areas. If you'd like more information, please contact our Student Accessibility and Inclusion team.


I am interested in postgraduate study, will there be someone to speak with about my interests and career goals?

Absolutely. On the day, there will be specialised postgraduate coursework staff ready to listen to your goals and answer any questions you have about undertaking your postgrad study with UOW.

I'm in high school, but not in Year 12 yet. Should I come to UOW Open Day this year or wait until later?

If you're interested in seeing what UOW can offer you after high school there's no need to wait until you're in Year 12 to take a closer look. While some of the information sessions may not apply to you just yet, it’s never too early to get information on your degree options and to experience the UOW Wollongong or Liverpool campus.
