Welcome to unimelb! Congratulations on your admission and welcome to your next adventure! So, where does UMSU come in your university life? UMSU is for students, by students. So yeah, I’m a student just like you! We do so much for the students at unimelb like food, fun events where you can make some new friends or hangout with your crew, all for free! It doesn’t get better than this. But we’re also here for you if you face issues with your subjects or course and need some help. We have so many different departments that hold events (big and small), campaigns, and they also advocate for you and different communities on campus. We’re planning to restart life on campus at our new home in the Student Precinct by holding huge events huge events like Bands and Bevs, Eid, Holi and Mid Autumn festival. All run by our different departments like Activities, People of Colour, Welfare, Women’s and many many more! UMSU also has a legal and advocacy service that gives out free legal advice and advocacy in case things go wrong during your time at university. The best part of all of this, is that becoming a member is free! Being a member of UMSU means that you get first access to news, events, and opportunities to get involved. It's super easy to get involved. Keep an eye out during O-Week for UMSU's block parties, and during the semester for on campus events.

No matter who you are, we guarantee we have something for you, your place is in UMSU <3 .So, if there’s something that you would like UMSU to pay attention to, please feel free to reach out by email.

I’ll be updating news throughout the year on important campaigns, information, and events. I hope to meet some of you during O-Week or come drop by my office when it’s safe.
