Our recreational facilities ensure there are plenty of spaces around UC where you can relax with friends, or take some time for yourself.
Common Rooms & Creative Spaces
UC has two junior common rooms where you can watch TV and Foxtel, play pool, table tennis, board games, or simply hang out with friends. There is also a senior common room for graduate students and resident tutors. This space is used for both study sessions and social events, such as wine and cheese nights.
For the creatively inclined, there are music practice rooms, a music production studio and an art and design studio.
UC is well known for its beautiful outdoor courtyards and landscaped gardens.
Our kitchen garden was opened by Stephanie Alexander (a highly regarded Australian cook and UC alumna). Our gardener and members of our sustainability committee tend to this garden. Students even get the chance to taste the fruits (and veggies) of their labour, as all the food produced goes into the meals cooked by our chefs. You can view our main courtyard and academic centre in the virtual tour below.
Health & Well-being
UC has a well-equipped gym with a weights and cardio room. There is also a multi-purpose outdoor sports court for leisure or training and UC sits across the road from the ovals and running track of Princes Park.
We also run regular yoga classes, mediation, self-defense and other activities during the year as part of our well-being program. There is also a busy calendar of sports to participate in.
Each year we usually have quite a few students studying music or practicing music as a hobby. We have several pianos around the college, as well as a music room, which students can book for these purposes. We also recently created a music production studio, complete with all the equipment needed to mix music or record podcasts.
