UOW students are among those doing it tough in the current COVID-19 pandemic. UOW staff have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to coordinate a food donation drive to assist students facing financial hardship.

To date, 810 pantry packs have been donated by staff to students across Wollongong and Sydney, with teams putting together more for distribution this week. The total donations amount to approximately $32 400.

A huge thank you to all staff who have so kindly donated to help our students at this challenging time. This has been a wonderful outcome and we appreciate the hard work of all the organisations and staff who have helped.

There are still options available for our students. Both domestic and international students are welcome to visit our volunteers at the UniHall on Wollongong Campus to grab what they need on weekdays between 5:00pm – 6:00pm or Saturdays between 11:00am – 12:00pm.
