About Us



The UCA holds a National Conference or Forum each year and gratefully acknowledges the important contribution of our sponsors which significantly contributes to the professional development and personal interaction of members.

In 2018 we were pleased to continue the relationship with our sponsors ABC Bedding,  StarRez and Superloop and were delighted to introduce our new sponsor, Unimutual.

Without the assistance of our sponsors it would be extremely difficult to produce the same high level of quality for our conferences and forums, and we invite all members to support them as the industry’s preferred suppliers.

The UCA Forum 2018 was held at The Henry Jones Art Hotel, Hobart, from 26 to 28 September. With the theme Collegiate Residences: Respect & Renewal, the Forum provided a platform for members and our industry partners to learn more about initiatives and issues within university collegiate communities.

Following is a list of our sponsors, their services and how to connect with them.
