The UNSW Art & Design Council is a newly formed body, representing student voices at the Paddington Campus. 

The Council is dedicated to helping enrich student life in all sorts of ways, from representation and advocacy on issues affecting the student body, to events and activities.

The Council is made up of UNSW Art & Design students dedicated to making sure your voice is heard on campus. Whether that means presenting issues to the Faculty or the University for change, introducing new initiatives, or creating student space to work or play, we are committed to seeing your university needs met. Term of office is one year 1 Dec - 30 Nov.

You can find student reps from the UNSW Art & Design Council in the Arc office most days, or at free tea on Thursdays in the courtyard and free bread Fridays. Come and chat to us, randomly when you see us or at our meetings roughly every two weeks.

We're addressing tonnes of student issues on campus and have loads of exciting events coming your way.

Disgruntled about UNSW Art & Design rebrand? Make sure to attend discussion forums early next semester.

Having problems with disabled access on campus? We're on it!

We've got forums, film screenings, clothes swaps, hot tips and much more - like us on Facebook and stay posted!

What do you hope to achieve in the Council? 

This year, my aim is to maintain a reliable point of call for all students, whether that be for equity issues, general questions, suggestions for campus improvements, plans for protests or ideas for events. Our council is an incredible group of current students and this year I am determined to support them to support our larger A+D community!

University can be a defining milestone in one’s life, and you spend a

one that they would never forget… in a good way!

Look out for ...

Our marketplaces! We on the council would know more than anyone how
expensive it can be to be a university student, especially one in the Art
and Design campus, so be sure to be keep an eye out for our future events.
It doesn’t hurt to be frugal, especially when you know you are playing your
part in encouraging a sustainable lifestyle on our campus.
