Venues

UWSVenues (opens in a new window) manage the commercial and community use of facilities on the Bankstown, Campbelltown, Hawkesbury, Parramatta and Penrith campuses. Venue hire at the Blacktown campus is managed by UWSCollege (opens in a new window).

UWSVenues offers an extensive range of facilities across Greater Western Sydney to cater from 10 to 1,000 delegates. Our facilities are suitable for a variety of activities including conferences, staff retreats, board meetings, charity and community events, weddings and intimate gatherings.

Teaching spaces are available for hire outside of core teaching periods – during the evening, on weekends and outside of semester – and a number of facilities that are not used for teaching and can be booked at any time.

For more information on the venues that are available, see the drop-down menus for each campus or visit the UWSVenues website (opens in a new window).
