Callback booking system

Remember that the Postgraduate Council is here to help whenever you need it. These include and are not limited to: academic concerns, well-being, research and supervisor issues, grievances, or even event ideas for PGC. Simply fill out the callback request form where you can speak to one of our friendly PGC Officers who can meet with you either virtually or in person.

UNSW Postgraduate Community Linkedin Group

Want to connect with current postgraduates and alumni? We’ve created a LinkedIn group just for UNSW postgraduates to share useful information and be part of a long-lasting community.

Postgraduate Lounge and Booking System

Don’t forget that there’s a relaxing meet-up and study space just for you at the Postgraduate Lounge (located next to Arc Reception). 

If you’d like to use one of the meeting rooms, there is now a booking system. Book ahead so you don’t miss out!
