As a student at the University of Melbourne, you will have the option of applying to live on campus in a Residential College or opting for off campus housing with UniLodge. As you read the information below, please be sure to review the general housing information for Australia.
The University of Melbourne has a well-established and thriving residential college scene. As a member of a residential college, you will be part of a community of residents. This involves participating in organized social functions, eating together in the college dining hall and taking part in other activities. Most colleges have teams that compete against the other halls in a range of sports. Living in a college is an excellent way to meet local students and to make the most of your time in Australia, but it is not for everyone. The application process for residential colleges is very competitive.
If your application is successful and you are lucky enough to be offered a place at University College, you will be a welcome member of this unique community. Set along the College Crescent, adjacent to other colleges, UC houses students in single and shared bedrooms with a full meal plan. The hall boasts an indoor recreation center, a gym and a music room. UC is active in inter-college sports competitions and the hall also has a music ensemble.
