Further Information



The University invites the community to enjoy a diverse range of science, art, theatre, music and learning experiences, as well as social, recreational and fitness activities at the Crawley campus and other University venues.

Business and Industry

UWA nurtures and promotes a culture of innovation, education and high ambitions, and we have the intellectual capacity to apply creative thinking to the technological challenges facing industries.

The University has also developed a network of strategic international relationships and collaborations to advance research and innovation, providing greater avenues for the exchange of teaching and learning.

Alumni and Friends
Our alumni are our graduates, members of Senate, past students, past and present staff, those awarded honorary doctorates, exchange students, guest lecturers, corporate partners, bequestors, donors, volunteers, friends and supporters of the University. A variety of Friends of the University groups encourage graduates, parents and local community members, who may be interested in the library, grounds, museums, art galleries, music and history, to become involved in university life.
McCusker Centre
the McCusker Centre for Citizenship seeks to create community minded thinkers and leaders by increasing significantly the opportunities for our students to work with community and not for profit organisations.
Community Partnerships
The University has developed its Community Partnerships Program to enable us to engage with, and give back to, the wider community, by providing support for a vast range of projects and initiatives. Applications are welcome and accepted year-round.

Throughout the year, UWA offers a range of events for different audiences including those interested in studying at the University, undertaking short courses or enjoying cultural and sporting events.

UWA has been the setting for many print advertisements, television commercials, short films, student projects and weddings; if you are interested in filming on the campus, submit a request at least seven working days before the intended filming date.

Cultural Precinct

UWA's Cultural Precinct presents a dynamic and intellectually rigorous program of exhibitions, theatre and music performances and cultural activities that amplify current concern, flag future issues and provide a perspective from which to view the past.

Every year Perth celebrates the international arts in venues across UWA and the city through the Perth International Arts Festival. Enjoy a movie at the Somerville Auditorium or events at the Perth Writers Festival at UWA – two highlights of the festival that the University founded.

News and media
The University’s Media Office is the central point of contact for journalists seeking expert comment, information about research developments and other story ideas. Media requests for comment from the Vice-Chancellor or the executive should be directed to the University Media Manager.
Working at UWA
The University is one of the larger employers in the State, providing work to thousands of people. While many people teach in one of our various faculties and schools, many others work in positions that demand professional rather than academic expertise.
