Are you a former student of UNSW? Did you reside in one of the 6 Colleges on campus? Would you like to re-discover old friendships and re-establish links with past students?

Our aim is to promote and maintain links between both former students, current students and the College, strengthen the community spirit and encourage the on-going participation in a range of social, cultural and sporting events.

Alumni members also benefit from the opportunity to expand their professional and social networks within a familiar environment.

Ways to give back


To enable low income students to come to UNSW and flourish, there are full and part accommodation scholarships for UNSW Colleges. Scholarships can be funded by individuals or groups, such as a country or a year group.

  • Full scholarship for 20 years: $250,000

  • Half scholarship for 20 years: $125,000

  • Full scholarship for 10 years: $125,000

  • Half scholarship for 10 years: $70,000

Social & academic support fund

Funds raised through this program will go towards fitting out study and social rooms with equipment like computers, musical instruments and games tables. We’re also hoping to use the funds to incorporate a series of sculptures to enhance the shared green areas of the Colleges.

A 'Wall of Thanks' will be created in 'The Mews' area of the new development. A donation of or over will be acknowledged on this wall on the following levels:

  • Patron: $10,000

  • Supporter: $5,000

  • Friend: $1,000

Leadership gifts

Significant leadership gifts to the Colleges will enable us to reduce the level of the debt incurred for these buildings and allow us to deliver more facilities and services to the residents.

Leadership gifts will be acknowledged through the naming of features or rooms within the Colleges, whether in recognition of the donor or in recognition of others.

These include:

  • Sculpture garden

  • Roof gardens

  • Study rooms

  • Common rooms and terraces

  • Floors
