1) Don’t get the Access card!

It’s wasteful. Unless you spend every one of your hard-earned dollars at uni, you’ll never make your membership fee back. And then you would still be broke anyway.
2) Don’t go to UniBros!

It’s frankly a ripoff (much like the Access card you use to get 50 cents off at UniBros!) and you’re better off walking a few minutes to Oz Turk Jnr on your way to Redfern!
3) Familiarise yourself with the layout of the uni
The main campus (which you will probably attend) is huge! To avoid getting lost, make sure you familiarise yourself with your timetabled locations first! You can do that with Google Maps, or one of the apps that USyd released here!

Your university life will improve ten-fold, no, hundred-fold with a group of dependable comrades! Even the uni has some information and tips to get you started!
5) Use the library!

Even if you aren’t a bookworm, you can still go and study at the library, and even hang out with friends there! You know, friends you made because you read this article!
