Guild O-Day 2019 Application Form: Guild Clubs & Invited Curtin Departments


Wednesday 20th February marks O-Day, one of the Curtin Student Guild’s biggest events of the year. Running from 11am - 2:30pm in the middle of Curtin's infamous O-Week celebrations, O-Day sees 10,000 new and returning students fill the main Curtin promenade for a great day of giveaways, activities, and general fun.

With students keen to receive many highly anticipated freebies, browse/join campus clubs and societies, and explore a variety of services tailored to the university market, stallholders gain access to a captive audience. O-Day provides a unique environment to connect with your stakeholders, whilst sharing information on services, activities, and/or products.

Students and stallholders alike can also expect to see numerous demonstrations, competitions, and activities throughout the day.

The Quiet 30

Following a successful trial in 2018, a "Quiet 30" will again been implemented for the first half hour of the event (from 11am - 11:30am) for students who experience difficulties with access and/or heightened sensory environments, as well as those that experience anxiety as a result of large crowds and/or noise. All stallholders are required to be ready and operating from 11am, however no amplified music or production lighting will be permitted until 11:30am.
