A campus life like no other.

We're excited that 2021 will give more students the chance to safely study at the University of Wollongong's (UOW) vibrant campus.

Many students have missed the social experience of learning in person throughout 2020. And we have too.

So, in 2021, as much as possible, UOW students will be able to enrol in face-to-face learning, meaning they can make the most of the quality campus experience we're renowned for. It’s why our students have rated us as the top university in NSW and the ACT overall (QILT 2020) and have given their overall educational experience at UOW the maximum 5-star rating (GUG 2021).
