UMSU Host Program
UMSU’s Host Program is all about welcoming new students to uni life here at the University of Melbourne. It’s a program run by students, for students, taking place on campus at the start of every semester during orientation week.
Our Volunteer hosts will be leading new students through some icebreakers, taking them on a pre-planned faculty-specific tour of the campus. With tips about everything from academia to UniMelb’s best coffee places, the Host Program will help get you ready for uni life.
Keep an eye out for all of the fun events outside O-week that we are bringing you too!
Host Program On Campus!
We had a great time welcoming you to campus over Summerfest 2021.
Check back in around June/July to take part in our exciting Winterfest Host Tours!
Missed out on a campus tour? Watch our virtual UMSU Host Tours of Parkville and Southbank Campuses, and also our tour of UMSU’s very own Union House.
Current Students Volunteers
Hosts are current University of Melbourne students that support the orientation of new students. As a host, you not only provide a faculty-specific tour around campus, but offer the students insights into to what university is like (from a student’s perspective) and the best tips to help new students get settled at university. You will also get to conduct some icebreakers with your group and get to know new students within your faculty.
Alongside the satisfaction of welcoming and orienting a whole cohort of first years, being a host provides you with an excellent opportunity to cross off a few volunteering hours that can go towards your LiCA (Leaders in Community Award), and we may even just toss some UMSU merch your way.
Applications are now CLOSED for Host Program Volunteers.
