Students planning to hold events, from small meetings to large international symposiums, may apply for support through the Community Partnerships Program. As part of this application process, budget, number of expected attendants, dates and times, access needs, and refreshments plans must be included in your submission.
The University does not offer ‘fee waivers’ under any circumstances. All venues managed by University Theatres (Octagon Theatre, Winthrop Hall, Winthrop Undercroft, Dolphin Theatre, New Fortune Theatre, Somerville Auditorium, Sunken Garden, the Bradley Studio and the Masonic Hall) or the UWA Venues Office (large lecture theatres, small lecture theatres and seminar rooms) will attract a fee (Guild-affiliated clubs are offered a discount). There are also a range of locally-run alternative venues available, ranging from venues at UWA Guild, UWA Residential Colleges, the University Club, and outdoor locations. If you are intending to apply through the Community Partnerships Program you must obtain a venue-hire quote prior to submission.
Students are encouraged to consider and list their organisation’s values and media partners, as well as the benefits UWA will receive from the event and resulting community partnerships that will be forged. These positive elements are crucial to gaining exposure for events, as the UWA Student Communications team will be in touch to offer assistance with promotion.
