Students entering Year 11 and Year 12 have been invited by UNSW to register as borrowers at the UNSW Library. Waverley College has a Schools Partnership Agreement with UNSW Library and for a membership fee of approximately $35.00 for one year (from October to September), students will gain access to the Library collections of UNSW. This includes borrowing privileges of up to 20 items for 28 days. They will also receive a UNSW Library card.
UNSW Library provides a great venue for study, especially at weekends.

A fully-supervised Study Centre is available in the library each day from after school until closing time (Mon-Thurs, 4:45pm; Fri, 4pm) for all students from Years 7 to 12. It is a great way for pupils to access library resources and expert guidance in time management and assignment planning.
