Adelaide University Union (AUU) O’Week festivities

Kick-off your 2022 uni adventure in style with the Adelaide University Union’s O’Week festivities.

Campus life is more than lectures and tutorials, there’s a whole community of clubs and societies and experiences you can get involved with to meet friends, build your skills, and make your time at the University of Adelaide one to remember.

Once you’ve attended your degree introductory talks, head down to Barr Smith Lawns / Maths Lawns and join the Orientation festivities with entertainment, stalls, and free food and drink, or come to one of our social events throughout the week!
