How To: Survive A Zombie Apocalypse

It’s 2:23 pm. You’re at the Quad lawn, waiting for your project group to turn up for an assignment meeting that was supposed to start at 1:30 pm. “Oh well”, you think to yourself, “it’s just a group assignment, I’ll survive”.

It’s 2:24 pm. Finally, your group has finally arrived. Unfortunately, they have also turned into zombies.

You run to the top of the Basser Steps, knowing that even the undead would rather starve than walk the stairs of death. You look down and realise that the entire campus has now become infested with zombies. What do you do now?

Here are some quick tips on how to survive a zombie apocalypse at UNSW!

Arc Legal & Advocacy

Just because the world has descended into chaos, doesn’t mean that your WAM has to as well! Book an appointment with the lawyers at Arc. They’ll let you know whether you can get special consideration for your Week 9 Assignment and whether you still have to pay off HECS in the zombie apocalypse!

Arc Reception

You watch on in dismay while the world you knew crumbles before your very eyes, you realise that your phone battery is dying. What a bummer of a day! Head to Arc reception to charge your phone at one of the FREE charging stations, and talk to one of the friendly Arc receptionists if you haven’t signed up to be a 2017 Arc member (it’s FREE). You never know, they might have a crossbow discount and you can learn to be the next Daryl Dixon!

Campus Security

Get the Campus Security App to get a shuffle bus or safety escort from one of these specially trained zombie killers.


As Shaun from Shaun of the Dead would say: Head to the Greenhouse, have a nice cold pint, and wait for this all to blow over!


If you need help surviving life post parents (minus the zombie apocalypse), sign-up to one (or all) of Arc’s How To Adult workshops (FREE) for some insider tips on adulting real good.
