Get to Know the Guild Part 5: Get Involved

Uni is about so much more than a degree. Make the most of your time at UWA by getting involved in campus life - it's a great way to meet new people outside of your classes, build up your skills and experience, and have fun while you do it!

Faculty Societies

Every faculty has its own society, known collectively as FacSocs. These societies sit on the Education Council and represent the students studying in that faculty. Through your FacSoc you can get involved in things like Inter-Faculty Sport, study nights, social events and more.

We recommend getting involved with or at least following your FacSoc on social media to stay up to date with anything important regarding your faculty.

Clubs

With over 160 Guild-affiliated clubs and societies at UWA covering a broad range of interests, you’re bound to find something the club for you. Find the clubs you're keen to check out on Facebook or Instagram and give them a follow, so you never miss an event or an opportunity to get involved.

The best way to join a club is to visit them and sign up at O-Day, or at Club Carnival on James Oval in week two. Most of the clubs will have stalls, giving you the chance to see everything on offer!

Guild Departments

We’ve got 12 Guild Departments representing the full spectrum of different campus communities. Th Departments run all sorts of initiatives and events throughout the year to improve the UWA experience and connect students to each other. You can get involved by liking our Facebook pages to keep up to date, or emailing the relevant student reps

Keep an eye out for opportunities to join Guild committees, where you can have a say on issues affecting all students!

Guild Volunteering

Guild Volunteering is your go-to for awesome volunteering opportunities with literally hundreds of life-changing organisations, both at UWA and in the wider community.

Volunteering is a great way to create impact, gain valuable skills and have fun in a friendly, inclusive environment of like-minded people. Guild Volunteering provides these opportunities all year through day trips, regional trips and events as well as regular micro-volunteering activities for those looking to volunteer on a more casual basis.

Find the perfect opportunity for you here!
