Climate Action Collective (Southbank campus)

Climate Action Collective is a fortnightly meeting that brings together students of Southbank to discuss the importance of climate action and ways which students can come together and take action.

New members are always welcome and all are encouraged to attend – now more than ever we need all to come together to take action on climate change.

We acknowledge that this collective takes place on the land of the Boonwurrung Peoples of the Kulin Nation. Sovereignty was never ceded. This always was and always will be Aboriginal Land.

12-2pm. On every second Thursday in Semester 1, starting 12 March.

Life at Southbank can get pretty stressful. It is perfectly normal for the long days and tough assessments to take their toll. University is about more than that though, it’s about making friends and knowing that there is a community that has your back.

Union Social is a fortnightly social event for students of Southbank campus who want a space to be social, blow off some steam, and grab some free food. The event is hosted at the UMSU Space on Level 2 of The Hub Building (863), above the Library. During Semester 1, Union Social will be hosted on Thursdays during odd weeks from 5.30-8pm. Dates for Semester 1 are:

  • March 5th 2020, 5.30-8pm (week 1)
  • March 19th 2020, 5.30-8pm (week 3)

This event follows Welcome Day on February 27th from 5.30pm. Booking a ticket in advance is absolutely essential (due to venue capacity). After you have booked a ticket, flash your student card at the door on the night and you can expect a drink on us, some food and some good times!

The UMSU Queer Department is continuing our collective down at Unimelb’s Southbank campus!

It’s an amazing space to meet other LGBTIQ+ students at Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) and Melbourne Conservatorium of Music! It’ll be a sweet hangout over free food, that we hope will blossom in a cute little queer community.

Come for Free Food and Free Art, stay for the Free Friends!

See you there ~
