The inner west began as villages for Sydney’s working class. Parts can still be gritty and a bitrough around the edges, but that’s all part of its charm. Continual celebrations of the many different cultures that make up the inner-west give this area a fun, friendly festival vibe. Now known as one of Sydney’s creative hubs, this area has an eclectic, exciting arts, music and food scene.
When you throw the University of Sydney’s Camperdown campus into the mix, even more flavour is added to this bohemian, culturally diverse pocket of Sydney.
Established in 1850, USYD was Australia’s first university. The imposing, neo-gothic, sandstone buildings and manicured lawns take you back in time, and remind many of Hogwarts. The campus has an impressive mixture of historic and modern architecture sprawled across 72 hectares.
Ranked third in Australia and 68th worldwide (out of 1500 universities) USYD attracts a vibrant mix of students from over 130 countries to study from its stunning campus.
The Student Union are the ones that make sure there is always something exciting going on around campus. They co-ordinate campus activities and facilitate a range of clubs where students can meet new people and share new experiences.
With such an abundance of manicured lawns, a huge number of events are held on the grass lawns. One of the most popular union events is FUNCH – FUN AT LUNCH. Free lunch and a show every Wednesday lunchtime over two hours. The show could be a live band, live capoeira & drummers & samba dancers, live DJs, magic shows.
Comfortable seating is a great way to make a university event more enjoyable. Outdoor beanbags are a great option to get people to notice, then settle into your event. Who can resist a comfortable beanbag? Outdoor Beanbag Hire have a brightly coloured range of beanbags which will stand out on campus. They are easy to move around and large for a couple of people to share if needed.
Their beanbags are tough enough to handle life on the lawn, with a few spits of rain or a few food and drink spills. Made from vinyl, these beanbags are easily cleaned with a quick wipe. If you are a bit time poor, the team at Outdoor Beanbag Hire are happy to deliver on campus.
Provide comfy, casual beanbag seating to make your events even better.
