The University of Sydney is one of the world’s leading, comprehensive research and teaching universities.

We make lives better not just by producing leaders of society, but through equipping our people so they can meaningfully serve all our communities at every level.


As a leader in tertiary education, we have been challenging traditions for more than 160 years. We were one of the first universities in the world to admit students solely on academic merit and to open our doors to women on the same basis as men. Today, we continue to embrace all aspects of diversity.

Our community consists of more than 50,000 students, approximately 10,000 academic and professional staff, and more than 300,000 alumni.

With diverse educational and research programs across our 10 campuses, we offer the widest range of disciplines in Australia.


The University of Sydney is a workplace brimming with inspiration, ideas and opportunities. We’re looking for people who bring passion to their work, want to follow their dreams and have an exciting career. We offer a diverse range of academic and professional roles for people with a desire to think, challenge, explore and transform.

The University of Sydney Ally Network’s vision is to create a welcoming, safe and supportive environment for all students and staff who identify as LGBTIQ, and their supporters. We provide a visible network of designated allies who support our LGBTIQ community.

I have high expectations of the University to show real leadership on things that matter. This is why I’m invested in helping to make it a place that celebrates catering for the complexity of people’s experiences of sexuality and gender. I am proud to be part of the work the University is doing to improve its LGBTIQ visibility and inclusion. I joined the Ally Network through which I have met many other LGBTIQ folk as well as straight allies who are committed to making the University of Sydney a place of sustained, intersectional and robust engagement with diverse LGBTIQ experiences.
