uwa student guild & the 2014 diary The UWA Student Guild, established in 1911, is a non-for-profit organisation focused on promoting and sustaining student life on campus and representing students to the University and wider community. We’re behind the cultural events, clubs, societies, social activities and publications that make studying at UWA so memorable! We also provide invaluable academic and financial support services and enable the student voice to be heard through elected student representatives. In addition, we operate retail and catering services on campus, ensuring that the dollars students spend go back into enhancing the student experience. With this array of exciting and useful services, it’s no wonder we consistently have one of the highest student memberships rates in Australia with over 90% of students electing to be members of the UWA Student Guild! The Guild Diary We’re offering you access to one of Australia’s most prestigious university populations to promote your brand. Available for FREE to Guild Members and used by over thousands of students every year, the diary is the UWA Student Guild’s most popular and eagerly anticipated publication! You’ll have unrivalled access to a market of almost 25,000 students, 66.3% whom are under the age of 25.

We’ve also included a campus map on page 22 and a map of Guild Village on page 20 to help you find where you are going. When we refer to room numbers, the first number denotes the floor and the other numbers denote the office.
We also assist Guild-affiliated clubs and societies with all aspects of event planning, from finding a venue to getting a liquor licence, and we’re one of the places you can get posters approved for display at UWA.
All your essential info about the Guild, UWA and everything else on and around campus! Hopefully we’ve covered everything, but if you need help with anything, just pop in to the Guild Student Centre and we’ll move mountains to help you (and make sure it’s covered in next year’s diary)! Still lost, confused or baffled? Ring us on (08) 6488 2295 or the University on (08) 6488 6000.
