Arc FAQs

Arc was formed in 2006 and is a not-for-profit organisation for students studying at UNSW. It's symbolic of an umbrella covering all of the students, clubs and societies in its care, and has nothing to do with floods or paired animals. Arc is all about everything outside the classroom; from volunteering opportunities to free food, there are a zillion opportunities to find your thing at uni with one of Arc's fun events or diverse clubs and societies.
