The University values the ongoing participation of its alumni in its cultural life on-campus.

There are many clubs and activities under the Cultural Precinct umbrella that alumni are encouraged to participate in, including Friends of UWA Music and the UWA Graduate Dramatic Society (GRADS).

A range of courses are offered though UWA Extension, and alumni are encouraged to participate in on-campus events, such as the Faculty of Music’s free Lunchtime Concert Series and a constant stream of public lectures across the disciplines.

The University also has many friends groups with a focus on arts and culture.

They offer benefits to members including information and free or discounted activities such as campus tours, lectures, films, musical and social events.

There a number of ways alumni and friends can support the development of cultural and learning experiences offered to students and the community through UWA’s Cultural Precinct, including bequests or directly to fundraising campaigns.

Through the development of the Cultural Precinct, the University is looking to further promote the arts as a part of the university experience for students. The student group - Cultural Precinct Collective - was formed in 2011 to encourage students to make the most of their campus. Additionally, many of the student clubs run by the UWA Guild on campus focus on the arts.

The Cultural Precinct also offers learning opportunities through Student Learning Placements at the various cultural entities and venues such as the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery.

UWA also recognises merit and excellence through a range of undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships.
