Funner Summer is BACK in January 2024!

Funner Summer is BACK in 2024 with trips and activities in EVERY BREAK!

Kick off your term breaks with awesome opportunities for UNSW International Students to chill out, hang out, dine out and reach out. Arc and UNSW have joined forces for you to try something new and make a whole bunch of great mates! Think beach, picnics, day trips, sports, tours and non-stop fun - everything you need to experience a classic Aussie break.

We've pulled together many of the events you've loved in the past, and a bunch of new ones. All of these events are either free or heavily discounted, so why not come along?!

See below for upcoming Funner Summer programming and ticket registrations!


We noticed that there are a number of students struggling to purchase our Funner Summer tickets due to high demand of interest. We want to ensure everyone has the same opportunity to experience our Funner Summer program, which is why we have decided to trial a NEW WAY of purchasing tickets. By filling out this expression of interest form, you may be selected randomly to get into chosen trips or events!

If you are selected, we will send you an email with a promo code to purchase your ticket. The promo code will expire after 48 hours and we will randomise the ticket again for the next person, so make sure to get in quick when you get that code from us and buy your ticket! Note that filling in this form does not guarantee you a ticket, it is only an expression of interest. This form will be accepting responses until Monday 9AM.
