Host Program Campus Tour


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 university 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 WinterFest 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.
