Welcome Back! We've missed you.

Student Life

Student Life is here to make coming back to campus just that little bit easier


Getting back into the books after a sweet mid-year break can be a struggle, but Swinburne Student Life is helping you kick-off Semester 2 with a bang. Join the good vibes at Welcome Back Week and start your semester off right.

Monday 5 and Tuesday 6 August, 11:30am – 2:30pm
John St & the Atrium

Striding into the new Semester like...

Free food, Sumo Wrestling, Giant Snow Globe and more!

Hungry? Treat yourself to a mouth-watering feast at the Food Truck Fair brought to you by Swinburne Student Life. You’ll find a variety of cuisines ranging from Greek to Italian, Lebanese, Indian and more. And it’s all free for students!

Have your cameras at the ready, as there will be no shortage of opportunities to fill your Instagram stories with a Sumo Wrestling station, and a giant Snow Globe to get in and experience your own Winter Wonderland. There will also be a spot to make yourself your very own Razor badges and a Fly Trap Velcro Wall so grab your mates, suit up, and get stuck into all the action at Welcome Back Week.

You can also try your luck at Razor’s Spinning Wheel for your chance to win free merch. And, who knows, you might even run into your favourite red feral pig…

If you’re not sure what clubs spark your interest, Clubs Day is an awesome opportunity to discover the variety that Swinburne has to offer. Get creative with the Swinburne Design Collective, discuss the art of a plant-based lifestyle with the Swinburne Vegan Society, get your game on with the eSports club, or try your hand at archery with the Swinburne Archer’s Club. From sport to cultural and social clubs, there’s something here for everyone.
