Unimates is one of the most active and diverse student societies at the University of Sydney. Since the early 2000s, we’ve organized weekly social activities and assisted International Students and Exchange Students in learning about Sydney/ Australia while providing an enjoyable social life in Sydney. With members from all over the world, we provide you the opportunity to meet students from diverse areas of study and cultural backgrounds through our social events. Local students are more than welcome to join us!
We have a wide range of social events throughout the semester: from visits to interesting and awesome places in Sydney and New South Wales, to out-of-state trips to other cities like Gold Coast during the semester break. We also frequently collaborate with other student societies to organize major events during the semester. So join us in our quest to making student’s life and experience in Australia and at the University of Sydney more memorable and something to keep for the rest of your life!
Led by a highly driven committee, we were awarded the Most Improved Audit Award in 2008 and was also shortlisted for the USU Club of the Year Award. In 2011, we were awarded the Highly Commended Best Joint Major Event with Sydney University Association of Malaysian Students (SUAMS), Singapore Students Society, UniBodhi, Teochew Chinese Association, and Vietnamese Students Association (VSA). Such is our dedication to creating the best social environment for students and we stand by our slogan: For Fun, For Friendship, Forever.
