Yellow Shirts

O-Week at UNSW is one of the biggest and best orientation weeks in Australia. Every year, around 6,000 new students are welcomed to the University by the friendly faces of the O-Week volunteers.

Every year, approximately 170 enthusiastic volunteers known as Yellow Shirts get the chance to spend one unforgettable week helping incoming students find their feet and have fun at UNSW.
