Arc - UNSW Student Life

Arc is your student organisation. We are obsessed with making UNSW student life an the time of your life. Being at uni is about so much more than dozing off in the classroom – it’s your time to shine! No matter how much time you have up your sleeve, Arc has something incredible for you. 

With 300+ Clubs & Societies you're sure to ignite your passion. You can be a drama queen with NUTS, or parlez-vous français with French Society. They catch-up regularly with fun events and development opportunities so you will be able to find your coolest crew, ASAP. Full list here.

♫ We like to party. We like, we like to party ♫ Arc members get the cheapest tickets to the biggest events. Maybe you’re keen to have the second best time you can have in a sheet at Toga Party, or get your zombie on at the Halloween Party. Leave your dignity at home. Roundhouse has the deets. 

BIG NEWS: The Roundhouse venue is being renovated in 2017, but while its away, a grand-spankin' new venue is here to play! Its called The Greenhouse and it can be found on The Village Green, just off Main Walkway. There will be a bar to chillax around, multi-purpose rooms for you to play in, food trucks and plenty of regular events like happy hour, table tennis, trivia and silent discos.

Keen for some warm and fuzzies? Then volunteering is your thing. With 30+ programs that help the local and global community, you can meet people while improving the world around you. The personal and professional development is a bonus that’ll ramp up your resume. The full list is here.

There’s plenty of financial and technical support for innovation, leadership and career development too. Check out the website for more deets.

Are you a profesh player or a certified couch potato? Arc Sport has a million ways to get active, from Social Sport to Unigames. Put on your runners (slightly less important if you’re swimming) and join a team!

Student teams work tirelessly to deliver fresh and fabulous publications to you. If you want to prove the mightiness of the pen by contributing, or just R’n’R (relax and read), these are for you.
