While we understand it’s not always easy, visiting UC in person is the best way to get a genuine feel for College life. There are several ways you can visit us.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Please note that due to the current COVID-19 threat we are restricting access to our campus to essential visitors only. We are therefore not taking individual or group tour bookings at this time. This will remain the case until after Easter, when we will reassess the situation. In the meantime, why not take a virtual look around our campus.
Open Day is a great opportunity to meet our current students and hear why they love living here. This event happens on the third Sunday of August each year, the same day as the University of Melbourne and Monash Pharmacy Open Days. You will be unlikely to experience a private tour on this day, but there are lots of staff and students around. This makes it a great opportunity to ask questions and really experience our college vibe.
The University of Melbourne also holds several interstate days each year. These generally take place on a Friday in the April, June/July and October school holidays. These events are aimed specifically at interstate students, allowing you to visit the university campus in the morning. You then have the option to experience lunch at a college, and take several college tours in the afternoon. Keep an eye on the University’s events page for upcoming dates.
If you are unable to make it to any of these days, you can still visit UC and take a private tour at a time that suits you. Tours generally take place between 9am – 4pm Monday to Friday. Please contact us in advance to arrange a suitable tour time. We are rarely able to accommodate walk-ins. Weekend tours can occasionally be arranged dependent on student availability and notice given.
On a private tour, a student or staff member will show you our key campus facilities, including both our new and heritage-style rooms.
We welcome you to contact the college via the form below to make a time for a personal tour. During the academic year you will have an opportunity to meet some students and get a feel for the friendly, relaxed, and supportive community that is UC. Please note that if you visit during the mid-semester school holidays (end of June/July) or the end of year summer holidays (end of November till mid-February) there will be no students at college.
