Help welcome our new students to the ACU community by donating good condition household items to our Welcome Bazaar.

Every year students come from all over the world to study at ACU, and for many, this is their first experience living out of home. To help them set up their new homes ACU Engagement, with the support of Campus Ministry, host a Welcome Bazaar event on each campus, offering free donated homewares to students.

Find out what’s needed on your campus and help welcome our new students.
