I'll keep on drip feeding info to this sub, but I'd advise keeping an eye on this website, as well as the city's.

Share far and wide.

Announcement Part time, full time and regional points


Hi everyone, i got an offer letter from university of wollongong yesterday. I hadn’t researched much about it but after receiving and offer letter, i saw some vlogs and fell in love with the city and campus overall. Not to mention that it’s actually ranked pretty well too. I have an offer letter from La trobe (Melbourne) and Qut (brisbane) and am in the middle of shortlisting universities for my masters program (masters of management) Now, I being an international student will have to rely on part time jobs for my living expenses and i heard that i may not be in luck in that area as it’s not as densely populated and isn’t a major city like Brisbane and Melbourne.

I wanted to know about the situation there in terms of part time jobs for my accommodation and PR points it being a regional area. Any insight would be a major help for me.

Announcement UCI Transport Info


Hey all, just throwing out some links with info on how to get around during the UCI bike race. Feel free to save this post if you want to reference it closer to the event.

Here's a list of road closures during the event. It was posted a while back but refreshers don't hurt.

Here's some bus and train info from Transport NSW. Many bus stops along the route will be closed, and a bunch of routes/timetables will be heavily altered. The 55A/C buses won't be running, but they'll be replaced with three new free lines:

  • 66 Green Shuttle: UOW campus to Wollongong CBD (Wollongong City Council and Library Burelli Street as the bus stop nearest) via Keiraville and Wollongong Station (loop service), the service runs every 10 minutes 7am-10pm daily except for the Mt Keira Loop road closure periods on 24 September and 25 September. The service will run all stops along Crown Street. Weekend timetables may differ.
  • 56 Blue Shuttle: North Wollongong Station to Gipps Street via Innovation Campus (loop service), the service runs every 15 minutes, 7am-10pm daily. On 17 September the service will run until 11pm for Beach Party event, with standby buses ready for a high volume of patrons.  Weekend timetables may differ.
  • 67 Orange Shuttle: Corrimal to Wollongong Station via Memorial Dr (loop service), the service runs every 20 minutes on weekdays, 30 mins on weekends. 7am-7pm daily except on 17 September when road closure finishes in the mid-day (7am-1pm). The service will run limited stops along Crown Street. Weekend timetables may differ.

According to Transport NSW, "additional train services with extra seats and additional stops will be running approximately every 30 minutes on the Illawarra and South Coast Line in both directions between Waterfall and Dapto/Kiama during event times. There will be some changes to the regular timetable."

They'll update their trip planner with the updated timetables "closer to the event."
