Graduate College Life

We understand that graduate study can be an intense experience, but the support of a College community ensures you can focus fully on your studies while we take care of your day-to-day needs. Living at University College gives you the opportunity to belong to a friendly, relaxed and supportive community.

UC’s greatest asset is its people. We’re proud when students say they feel at home as soon as they walk through our doors. Undergraduate students, graduate students, resident tutors and staff all know each other by name, and there is genuine care and support for each other.

Life as a UC graduate student is a rewarding, engaging and inspiring experience. Joining a college community offers you the opportunity to forge friendships with other students from around the world.

Accommodation

All student accommodation consists of a large, modern lounge room and separate bedroom. You are also guaranteed an ensuite bathroom. Although all meals are provided, all graduate rooms and apartments contain their own kitchenettes, so you can cook for yourself when desired. Check out our virtual tour below for an example of a typical graduate apartments.

Activities 

The senior residents of UC, including resident tutors and graduate students, make up the Senior Common Room (SCR). As members of the SCR, graduate members of the college community have their own space for studying and social events, such as ‘chat and chill’ evenings with wine and cheese.

Many graduate students also appreciate a break from study, so this group also runs external social events, such as winery tours, escape rooms, mini-golf and other chances to explore the many cultural and culinary delights that Melbourne has to offer. SCR members are also frequently invited to intercollegiate graduate events around the Crescent. They can also of course participate in all of the sporting, musical, dramatic, artistic and social activities with the undergraduates.

There are also academic events at the college, such as high table dinners, career-oriented workshops, seminars and fireside chats, as well as the chance to network with many distinguished visiting academics. Academic support is available through the College’s consultation and tutorial program. You can also earn income as a tutor by providing tutorials and consultations to our undergraduate students.
