What to expect

How it works

Our colleges are free to join. There are eight non-residential colleges across our Caulfield, Clayton, Parkville and Peninsula campuses, with 250 members each.

Each college has its own distinct culture, and we love getting together for events that bring the entire community together (and encourage some friendly rivalry).

Get involved

Membership perks

Non-residential colleges provide students living off-campus with a range of social and academic benefits, including:

  • support and mentorship from college advisers
  • exclusive events, including our college dinners
  • inter-college activities and competitions – from sporting competitions to social nights
  • access to private on-campus common rooms.

College support teams

More than a student club, colleges provide structured mentoring and guidance through dedicated support teams.

College advisers

Each member is assigned an adviser to guide them through college and university life. These are typically fellow college-members in the higher-years of study.

College coordinators

Full-time staff members who organise academic, social and recreational programs and activities.

College head and deputy college heads

Our colleges are lead by University staff members who provide advice, wisdom and support.
