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 our beautiful campus while you enjoy UOW’s five-star educational experience. 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.

Would you like to see for yourself? Book a campus tour and we'll be happy to show you around.

Outside the classroom


Live on campus

In a UOW residence, you'll 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 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.


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.

Our clubs are a reflection of the diversity of the student body.

Staying healthy


Keep fit

You can workout in the UOW gym, take a dip in the Olympic-sized swimming pool, or join in any one of 100 group exercise classes a week. It’s all part of student life at UOW.


Get active

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 for lunchtime kick-arounds or national comps.


Eat well

UOW students are spoilt for choice between our eight cafes, the popular UniBar and the IGA supermarket, which are conveniently scattered throughout campus.

Above all, we are a social and wellbeing society.
