Campbelltown campus Provost

A message from Professor Annemarie Hennessy, Provost, Campbelltown campus

Welcome to the Campbelltown campus of Western Sydney University. Over the past two years the campus facilities have undergone a make-over which complements the natural beauty of the location with surrounding rolling green hills, abundant birdlife (the ducks and water hens have right of way on the campus roads), and lakes. Here you will see sculptures from around Australia exhibited in the University's Sculpture Prize, you will find relaxing places to read a book under a tree and places to walk or run.

The campus is 10 minutes walk from Macarthur train station and Macarthur Square Shopping Centre and trains to the city leave every 15 minutes from Macarthur Station. The University provides a regular shuttle bus to and from Macarthur Station.

As Campus Provost, I am interested in all activities on Campus and work with students and academic and professional staff to  bring a vibrancy to the student life and promote the campus locally. I chair the Campus Life Committee and oversee the Campus Life Grants program which supports events on campus to ensure that your time at uni is fun as well as providing you with qualifications. At Campbelltown campus there are regular public talks, music, visits by Sydney Food Trucks have been introduced, partnerships established with the Campbelltown Arts Centre, Midnight Basketball program, Fishers Ghost Fun Run and other activities.

I am encouraging students and staff to be involved in activities on campus and if you would like to be involved or have a suggestion for activities please contact me. Your involvement will be welcome.

Campus Life Grant Scheme

As part of Western Sydney University's commitment to enhancing the vibrancy of each of its campuses, the University has established Campus Life Committees (CLC) to meet the diverse needs of the individual campus.

The CLC is chaired by the Provost and draws membership from staff and students located on the individual campuses. The Committee is the peak advisory body to the Campus Provost and student campus councils on matters relating to campus life. The CLC's play a key role in the administration of the Campus Life Grant Scheme, an initiative that aims to:

  • Build and maintain links between the University campuses and its external communities; and
  • Provide a more vibrant and engaging campus for students and staff.

To apply for the scheme, please see the Campus Life Grant Scheme Application Form.
