What to expect from O-WEEK

Student Life

We're bringing the good vibes to you this July at O-WEEK.


O-Week is all about you and discovering your new campus. Whether you’re keen to meet new mates, join a club or sporting team, or simply get involved in the good vibes of the week - Swinburne Student Life is bringing it all to you.

Free food from Real OG Burgers

One of the perks of being a student is all the free stuff you can get, right? Swinburne Student Life is putting on a burger feast for all new Swinburne students. Wrap your lips around one of these mouth-watering monsters for a self-induced food coma.

Razor will be your new best friend

Test your might on the giant surfboard or chill on a bean bag

There’s nothing like taking to the waves on a giant inflatable surfboard in the middle of a Melbourne winter. If you’re feeling up for the challenge, head to the Atrium and jump aboard and see how long you can last. For those, less extreme at heart, there will be plenty of bean bags to kick back in and treat your ears to some sweet tunes. Razor the Razorback will be hanging around, so be sure to say hey and give him a high five!

Make some friends at Speed-Friending!

Speed Friending, and sweet Swinburne merch

If you’re feeling social and want to get to know your new uni crew, why not get involved in some Speed Friending? It’s just like speed dating, except for friends.

Keen to win some sweet merchandise and prizes? Try your luck at Razor’s Spinning Wheel for your chance win Razor merch that will have you looking the part. We’ve also rounded up a bunch of our favourite promoters who will be on campus to chat to you and provide discounts, giveaways and offers exclusive to Swinburne students.
