About UMSU

With a living history that extends over 130 years, at the University of Melbourne Student Union (UMSU) we are committed to providing quality experiences on campus that create a community for students, staff and visitors from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences.

As a non-profit organisation run by students, for students, we provide valuable funding that keeps the arts, representation, advocacy, live music and cultural services alive on campus and will improve your time at uni immeasurably.

It’s about getting more out of your time at uni. It’s about immersing yourself in a wealth of cultural facilities and events whilst having access to quality support services. It’s about making sure that students have advocacy and representation on campus. It’s all about the battle to keep student voices in the big picture whilst making your time at uni fun and enjoyable.

All students automatically have access to all Student Union services including:
