Yellow Shirts

Every year, approximately 170 enthusiastic volunteers known as Yellow Shirts get the chance to spend one unforgettable week helping incoming students find their feet and have fun at UNSW during O-Week in Semester One. 

The mega-extravagant-amazing-wonderful event that is O-Week doesn't just magically happen every year. It's such a huge success because of the hard work, commitment and fun-loving spirit of the Yellow Shirts.

As one of Arc’s most famous and beloved volunteer programs, being a Yellow Shirt will provides students with lifelong friends, skills and hilarious memories. Yellow Shirts is a great opportunity to meet people from all over campus and get to help others in a way that can make a lasting difference.
