Built Environment Student Association (BESA) is the official constituent society of UNSW Built Environment. Our main objective is to establish a community within the Faculty that encourages an open forum of networking and collaboration for students across all disciplines - both undergraduate and postgraduate.

Feel free to come and join the community discussion and get involved with what's happening in the Built Environment.
