Hey there! Welcome to the Arts Union of the University of Western Australia’s homepage!
I’m Jay, the president of Arts Union for 2024, I’m glad you’re here. 

The Arts Union is a student-led representative body for every student studying a Bachelor of Arts and all other Arts majors, and minors at UWA. We interact, on behalf of the students, with the School of Humanities, the School of Social Sciences, the UWA Student Guild Education Council, and more! This means that if you ever have an issue regarding staff behaviour, university regulations and policy, unit availability, or are even struggling with your studies, we’re here for you, both as a support network and an advocacy network.

The Union was established in 1944 and has held regular events ever since, such as the annual ball, sundowners, study nights and wine tours. Our aim is to supplement the education you are undertaking at the university with support, personal development, and fun opportunities that enhance your university career from “just a degree” to a fuller, more well rounded expierence that you can look back upon with fondness. We do this through 4 primary portfolios: Education, Socials, Equity and Externals. Check out our alternative faculty handbook to find out more about the portfolios to see if you might like to get involved with our events or the committee itself.

If you'd like to contribute to Arts Union, feel free to get into contact with us so we can explore potential opportunities. Our prospectus is available on the sponsorship page. If you're an Arts student at UWA looking to get involved, reach out to us on our Facebook page, sign up for a membership via the membership section at the top of the page, or come find us in the Arts Union Common Room on the ground floor of the Arts Building, next to the Alexander Lecture Theatre.

Hope to see you around campus and at Arts Union events,
