On-Campus Activations

Activations play a key role in generating organic buzz about a brand and contribute to the University of Sydney’s engaged vibe. Brands activating with the USU have an exclusive opportunity to promote directly to the 20,000 students and staff daily.

We understand that no two brands are the same and so customise each activation with a choice of three high foot traffic locations, Eastern Avenue, Jane Foss Russell Plaza, and Courtyard Restaurant and Bar. Additionally, both of our bar locations, Manning Bar and Hermann's Bar, are ideal locations for larger activations.
