Social Media

Social media channels can be a great way to see what is happening at the different Melbourne colleges – and help you decide which college is the best fit for you. There are always plenty of updates on student activities, so follow our Facebook or Instagram channels, or check out our live social feeds below for the latest stories.

We also have a YouTube channel, where you can see lots of videos of our students talking about their experiences at UC, and a LinkedIn alumni group so when you leave college you can stay in touch and hear about job opportunities, alumni events and more.

While all colleges share certain similarities, it's the values, history and diversity of each student community that sets us apart.

So how do you choose the residential college that’s right for you?

We were recently joined by some relatives of artist Erica McGilchrist who came to visit our Legend of Being mural, which Erica painted in 1958. Spanning almost 11 metres and taking over six months to complete, the mural represents the complexities of ‘being human’ – with each of the three panels designed to represent a fundamental aspect of human existence: belief, love and belonging. #art

Since moving to Australia from the US a bit over two years ago, I have been working as a Team Leader for a group of Specialist Trauma Counsellors at 1800RESPECT, and additionally as a social worker/counsellor at the Royal Women’s Hospital. Prior to my relocation, the majority of my work was in providing counselling to high school students.⠀

I’m so excited to get to work with the students. I really valued my time at uni and living on a college campus, and I’m passionate about counselling and higher education. This role encompasses all of those things, and I’m looking forward to learning more about the students and culture at UC.⠀

I love to explore new places and travel, and since I am still relatively new to Australia I still have many places to go! With all of the restrictions related to COVID and not being able to travel internationally and at times even domestically, I have really come to appreciate taking road trips around Victoria and getting to explore this great state. I am also very passionate about food, and am always trying to learn new skills! I’m currently taking a 30 day intensive baking course online with Christina Tosi from @milkbarstore in NYC, and it has been amazing.

Did you know that the traditional place name for Melbourne is Naarm? ⠀

This week is NAIDOC Week. The NAIDOC 2021 theme, Heal Country!, calls for all of us to continue seeking greater protections for our lands, our waters, our sacred sites and our cultural heritage from exploitation, desecration, and destruction. UC would like to take this opportunity to pay our respects to all First Peoples of this land and celebrate their enduring connections to Country.

As UC grew in size, the heart of the College (the Dining Hall) was also expanded.

The first photo is of the Dining Hall that was demolished at the end of 2015, and the second shows the Dining Hall that was built to accommodate our larger cohort. Many of you have spent many hours in one or the other, chatting and sharing a meal with friends after a long day 💙
