Our Core Purpose

Our core purpose is to create a consistent and quality hospitality experience at UNSW.

To do this, we are markedly expanding and improving our events offering and the presentation standards of our venues. We are revitalising catering and introducing a concierge service to welcome our guests and partners at key venues. We are also working with our cafes and food outlets to improve their offering and we are enhancing spaces aligned to hospitality.

We consider hospitality to be a critical element of the vision for World-class Environments that provides a sense of place and pride in UNSW where our communities can come together to innovate, transform, learn and contribute to society.

Consistent and quality hospitality contributes to:

  • attracting and retaining leading academics, researchers, staff and students by providing welcoming and appealing experiences
  • the ability to cater for and host working sessions, conferences and events
  • promotion of the UNSW brand
  • increasing the utilisation and return on investment for buildings such as Scientia and Cliffbrook Estate
  • creating a sense of place that contributes to student retention and leaves a lasting impression with our communities.
