Semester 2 Host Program, taking host applications now!

The UMSU Host Program is a student run-and-led tour of the University of Melbourne, showcasing aspects of student life such as the best study spaces, the best coffee places, and where to go to jumpstart your univeristy degree academically. We introduce incoming students to the campus as well as each other, running guided tours, networking events and activities designed to help you connect. You’ll be hearing from us soon if you’re coming to Melbourne, so watch out for our emails!

  • What are Host Campus Tours?

UMSU’s Host Program runs campus tours which give you an opportunity to meet a bunch of students from your course, go on a tour of the campus and get some tips and tricks on enjoying uni life! We welcome all students and are excited to meet you at a Host Campus Tour during Summerfest orientation. Hosts are current University of Melbourne students that support the orientation of new students! They not only provide faculty-specific tours around campus, but insights as to what university is like (from a student’s perspective) and the best tips to help new students get settled at university.

  • I’m a new student to The University of Melbourne, how do I find a tour and a tour Host?

As a new student, you don’t need to apply – we’ll contact you! New students will be emailed by their Hosts about allocation time and thier meet-up place. We hope you are excited to make new friends and get to know the campus. Arrive at your designated meet up place on the day, and we hope you learn more about the University and make new friends from your group! If you can’t find your allocated group, feel free to join another one – you’ll meet lots of interesting people. Just look for the friendly students wearing Host shirts on the day!
