not sure if srs

I've had my car scratched twice on baeker street one was a clear coat scratch about 30cm and the other went all the way into the primer

Tip : avoiding parking next top cottofootpaths
You'll never know <3 but in all seriousness, I don't know why someone would scratch a car, now need to figure out whether it would be worth driving in or just getting Public Transport.

found one spot on barker street but it was 3P and took me 10 mins to get to campus. Was still pretty busy. Probably won't drive most days

where abouts? I didn't know there were any 3P spots.

park near the park and it is free all day. just say away from the front and back of the roads to reduce the risk of junkies touching your car

I checked the class utilisation website and a few classes/tutorials were "tent". Does that mean they're closed and will they be opened later?

Likely to be opened later. You should send an email to the course convener requesting more times to be opened. If you don't say anything, nothing will change.

Note some tutorials may be reserved for some students, especially if it's maths related.

not sure if this is useful but if you get off at town hall and walk to hyde park, you can catch: 392 L94 399 396 394 - hopefully more convenient for people travelling from the otherside and less congestion for the express bus heh

the buses stop at the front entrance of unsw only im pre sure

An introduction

Who is this and why are you writing this?

It’s about time I contribute to BOS, so I’m making some updates and improvements to the original post since it is now quite outdated. You obviously don’t need to know everything in this guide, so use the headings and read what you need to and if you can’t find the answer then post any queries. Thanks to Squar3root for some contribution as well.

From the OP:

My name is Nancy, and I began a Combined Science/Arts degree at UNSW this year. Personally, I found most of the guides to UNSW too wordy, or they contained info that I didn’t need, but not the info that I did need. So I decided to make my own guide, with all the info you need summed up neatly. Of course, I don’t know EVERYTHING about the uni, and some of my info might not be 100% accurate, so if you wanna contribute then go ahead. Enjoy!

Thanks to McLake for the contributions!


I know what a university is. What’s so special about UNSW?

If you wanna know the full details, you can have a look at the official UNSW website, https://www.unsw.edu.au/

But I’ll sum it up for you, from my point of view:

- 3 main campuses – Kensington, COFA (College of Fine Arts) and ADFA (Australian Defence Force Academy) and many more affiliated sites (from this point onward, I’ll generally be referring to the Kensington campus)

- The University is ranked 49th in the 2016 QS World University Rankings
- 78th in the 2016/7 Times Higher Education World University Rankings
- A leader in research and teaching excellence
- Strong links to research and industry (Go8)
- Wide variety of programs offered to students – undergraduate, postgraduate and research programs
- Great social and recreational activities (clubs, societies, sport) offered to students
- Excellent reputation for alumni (= people who’ve finished their degree and graduated)
How much did you get paid for this
