University of Sydney Grads

HostCo and the University of Sydney Union

HostCo was created by the USU as a specialised catering and events company, delivering memorable experiences for every type of event, from weddings and meetings to intimate social gatherings. Proudly profit-for-purpose, all HostCo proceeds are directly invested into student services and programs, dedicated to providing the best campus experience in Australia.

University of Sydney Event Spaces

Prior to COVID-19 and the changes it has brought to the University landscape, you would likely have seen the HostCo team helping at major events throughout the year, including manning the popular USU Food Truck during Welcome Fest, International Festival and Sustainability Week, as well as catering at graduation ceremonies. Catering to every corner of the university and anywhere off-site, we work hand-in-hand to deliver distinctive, one-of-a-kind occasions.
