Community Outreach

Community at UNSW is one of the cornerstones of our mission. Our objective is to make an impact on contemporary issues by being recognised as a key source of expertise in our communities, ensuring vibrant and growing partnerships with industry and community organisations, and developing and maintaining highly valued relationships with alumni, former staff and UNSW supporters.

Many campus events are proudly supported by Randwick Council, and UNSW is a major sponsor of Randwick District Rugby Union Football Club.
