University life isn't just about the classes. It's also a chance for you to make lifelong friends, try new things, develop your hobbies and interests, gain leadership skills and have fun.
There are countless opportunities to immerse yourself into our vibrant student life, and make the most of your university experience.
The University of Sydney Union (USU) is a big part of what makes our student experience so memorable.
One of the few remaining independent, student-led organisations in Australia, they organise clubs and societies, events and programs throughout the year.
Membership is free, and you can upgrade to USU Rewards to access discounts and offers across campus.
We have over 250 clubs and societies, bringing together students to celebrate their culture, indulge in a favourite food, discuss a fandom, develop a professional network and more.
There's bound to be one (or many) that interests you - but if there isn't, then start your own! It's a great way to make friends outside the classroom, discover a new hobby and develop your skills.
Whether you’re training for a gold medal or looking for a lunch time social competition or Pilates class, Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness (SUSF) offers programs, membership options and sports clubs to suit everyone.
