BESA (The Built Environment Student Association)

The Built Environment Student Association (BESA) is the official constituent society of UNSW School of Built Environment. Our main objective is to establish a community of students across all disciplines, both undergraduate and postgraduate, that encourages an open forum of networking and collaboration. We cater to all students studying in the School of Built Environment. Feel free to come and join the community discussion and get involved with what's happening in the school.

ARCHSOC (Architecture Society)

The Architecture Society (ARCHSOC) aims to create an environment where students are comfortable to share and discuss architecture. For those who are studying or just interested in architecture, we strongly believe an educational culture in which we can learn from each other is the way we move forward in the industry. As such, we want to learn together through lectures and activities such as social nights and barbecues.

CAPS (The Construction and Property Society)

The Construction and Property Society (CAPS) aims to bring together students and industry professionals. Our social events are designed to create the link between prospective students, who would like to embark on a career within the property and construction sector, to the companies and organisations that drive the industry.

CAPS seek to boost industry knowledge and familiarity to students of UNSW and the greater community through public awareness and service. CAPS has established information services for all students on topics such as OHS&E, women in the workforce, report writing techniques, and advice on how to find the right jobs within the industry.
