College Life

Whoever you are, wherever you’re from, you’ll find a place to belong at UC.

The transition from school to university can be exciting yet daunting for students. Finding your way on a large university campus, particularly in your first year, is not always easy. Living at University College gives you the opportunity to belong to a friendly, relaxed and supportive community where everybody knows each other.

University College (UC) is a community of 200 students who study at the University of Melbourne, RMIT, Monash Pharmacy and ACU.

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 studentsgraduate students and staff all know each other by name, and there is genuine care and support for each other.

One of the great things about UC is that we have no hierarchy in place. Different year levels, undergraduates and graduates mix freely, with resident tutors living amongst students.

The UC family feeling begins early as Orientation Week starts with “Welcome Sunday”, where current students help you to move into your room and new home. That kicks off a full week of exciting activities, organised by the Student Club, to help you find your way around campus, meet amazing new friends and have fun exploring Melbourne together.

You have the opportunity to be involved in a broad range of activities that are of interest to you. The more you put into College life, the more you’ll get out of it. Check out our galleries for more about college life.
