UOW grew from the Illawarra community’s desire for a better future, and we maintain the close connections we’ve developed with both our Australian and international communities.

Our campuses in Southern Sydney,BegaBatemans Bay, the Shoalhaven, and the Southern Highlands extend education and employment opportunities beyond the Illawarra and into surrounding regions.

Our activities generate over $2 billion in gross output annually, and since 2005, our Community Engagement Grants Scheme has awarded more than $400,000 to support UOW staff and students to work with community groups.
