Residential Colleges

For over 130 years our Colleges have been a home away from home for University of Melbourne students. There are ten Colleges right on campus for you to choose from, each with its own unique community spirit, and each offering a supportive environment that will help you to make lifelong friends, build lasting connections, and become part of a strong global network.

Explore your passions or try something new with a huge range of social, cultural and sporting events for you to take part in and even lead. Boost your studies and develop your skills beyond your degree with our extra learning programs and study support from academic staff. Find your people and make lasting connections with a long history of past students who are passionate about creating exciting career opportunities for those who now call their College home.

Most Colleges offer a single furnished room with common hangout spaces and bathrooms and meals are provided in the beating heart of every College - the Dining Hall.

More than a third of College students receive financial help, with over $7.5 million in scholarship funding offered to young people from many different backgrounds, experiences, and areas of study. If you feel like finances may be a barrier for you, find out how our financial assistance options can help make your College experience possible.
