Explore campus life

You can also make the most of your time at Melbourne by getting involved in University life. This includes:

  • Joining a student club or society, when you'll meet like-minded people and enjoy events and activities organised through the club.
  • Going to free campus events, with plenty of things on all year, from future student events to free public lectures and Wednesday farmers markets.
  • Using our range of sporting facilities, with access to a gym, running track, group fitness classes, squash courts, a swimming pool and more.
  • Entering competitions, from an online photography competition to the annual Amazing Spaghetti Machine contest, our calendar is full of opportunities to try Melbourne life for yourself.
  • Off-campus adventures, with so much to see and do both in Melbourne and around Victoria. There are plenty of day trips you can take to sleepy country towns, breathtaking coastlines and lush forests with Australian wildlife. Go to Visit Victoria to plan you off-campus adventures.
