I look forward to each and every Orientation because it is so amazing to see UTS students from all faculties confidently taking students on tours, staffing the helpdesk, and just having fun!
Sarah Graham - Peer Network Coordinator
The Peer Network is a team of current UTS students who assist commencing students with the initial transition to university. We’re an energetic, outgoing and friendly group dedicated to make university life for new students as easy as possible. Since its foundation in 1998, the number of Peer Networkers has grown to over 350 students.
Helping new students can involve leading campus tours, staffing the Orientation helpdesk and coffee cart, mingling at official welcomes, answering questions, and more. Peer Networkers also assist students at a variety of Student Services Unit events, such as the Network Café.
Being a Peer Networker comes with a range of benefits, including training, special events, certificates and references, networking advantages and, of course, the famed t-shirt.
We are all current students, so don’t hesitate to approach us with any questions you may have about the university – just look out for our instantly-recognisable bright orange t-shirts.
