Start creating your timetable

If you enrol before 30 January 10am

After you've enrolled, you can login to Allocate+ and enter your preferences for class times.

When you log in, you'll see a list of your units. For each unit, you'll see a list of activity (class) types such as lecture or tutorial. Select each one and add up to six time preferences. If you see 'Auto allocated' this means there was only one time-slot for the activity.

You can enter and adjust your preferences until preference entry closes at 10am on Tuesday 30 January. After this, the system sorts the preferences to give you a workable timetable.

From 10am on Tuesday 6 February, Allocate+ reopens and you'll get the chance to make some final changes during the adjustment period.

Enrolling after 30 January

If you enrol after 30 January, you can create your timetable into Allocate+ after it opens on 6 February at 10am. You do this by selecting from the available activity (class) times.


Some courses have a set timetable, so some students don't have to add their class activities. You'll only be able to view the timetable, not change it - this applies to Parkville students.


The system will close, sort and re-open. Check the system opening and closing dates.

Get started

Login to Allocate+ using your Monash username and password.

Units with a green tick have been allocated for you by your faculty. Those with yellow have allocations pending approval. Units marked with red need to be allocated.

Numbering your preferences

You need to choose each activity with a red status, and put your preferred class times in order of 1 (most preferred time) to least preferred. The system will tell you how many preferences you need to enter.
