SURG is the student-run radio group at the University of Sydney – we love everything broadcast, digital arts and culture. Proudly continuing the history of campus radio, our online broadcast began in 2011 and has continued ever since. As one of the most active clubs on campus, we frequently collaborate with other media societies and have also expanded our content to include writing, podcasts and video. SURG broadcasts five days a week during both semesters of the USyd academic year.
SURG provides a great experience with radio, writing and editing! It’s a great chance to make something out of your interests and hobbies. You will also have access to a wider network of people in the industry and students who are looking to get into the local music scene will have the opportunity to play at one of the regular gigs we host – just reach out to us!
SURG hosts regular events like High Rotation, showcasing local DJs and talents. We also host fortnightly afternoons at Hermann’s with special guests and DJs (and also discounted drinks). SURG is also active on Facebook, Instagram and Tiktok where we promote our radio shows and our podcasts, as well as any events we are hosting.
