20 February – 1 March

You’ve heard of O Week, right? We figured that one little week isn’t enough to give everyone a proper welcome to campus for 2018. So, we cooked up SummerFest – two weeks of fun in the sun!

SummerFest is a kaleidoscopic celebration of student life, held over two exciting weeks at the end of February. Hosted by the University of Melbourne Student Union (UMSU), the bold array of things to see, do and eat will provide a fun and accessible introduction to life at university.

SummerFest is about making connections, discovering new things and finding your feet at the start of a grand adventure. We’re going to take all the anticipation and excitement that comes with starting a new semester and use it to transform our campus into a sprawling wonderland of diverse activities and experiences.

Open to young and old, new and returning students, join us for SummerFest 2018. Main events are:

      • Carnival Day – Tues 20 Feb: Say hello in style with our official welcome carnival featuring giveaways, games, live entertainment and more.
      • Clubs Day – Wed 21 Feb: Find your people with over 200 student clubs & societies to choose from!
      • Clubs Day – Thu 22 Feb: Day 2 of our massive clubs expo, come and meet your new best friends with a whole new list of clubs to join.
      • More events in Week 1: Tuesday bands, Speed Friending, Green Screen, Tours, Picnics, Collectives, Craft stations, Live radio broadcast, and more!
