Melbourne’s Student Residential College
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.
You can 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 and your family our key residential college facilities, including both our new and heritage-style rooms where possible (please note, when students are in residence we may not have any free rooms to display).
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.
Virtual Tour – Open Day
Open Day is a great opportunity to meet our current students and hear why they love living here. This event usually happens on the third Sunday of August each year, the same day as the University of Melbourne and Monash Pharmacy Open Days. Please note, there was no physical Open Day in 2021. Instead, the University of Melbourne and the colleges ran a virtual open day event. You can view a recording of one of the UC tours on YouTube. or watch below. Or you can check out a 360 degree view of some of our key campus facilities.
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.
Each month we are currently running informational webinars about UC. Register for our next webinar here.
