Host Program Campus Tours

Joining a Host Campus Tour is a great way to start your life at uni! It’s a way to meet new people and get acclimatised to the Unimelb campus, with plenty of chances to socialise with other new students from your faculty.

  • 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 WinterFest orientation.

  • I’m a new student to Unimelb, how do I find a tour and a tour Host?

Welcome to the University of Melbourne! It’s great to have you join us!

New students are all welcomed to join our host tour on Wednesday 19th July!! We hope you are excited to make new friends and get to know the campus. You can find the meet up place and time according your faculties. Rock up to the meet up place on the day and you’ll be assigned in a group with our lovely hosts.

  • How do I become a Volunteer Host?

Hosts are current University of Melbourne students that support the orientation of new students during Winterfest. 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.
