UMSU Host Program

UMSU’s Host Program is all about welcoming all students (new and old) to campus. It’s a program run by students, for students, taking place at the start of every semester.    

The Host Program Online ! 

Stuck at home but want to know campus like a pro when we all victoriously return?

Watch our Virtual Tours! These videos will equip you with everything you need to know about Parkville campus and the all important home of UMSU – Union House. If you’re a Southbank student, there is also a Southbank campus tour in there for you!

Current Student 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 for volunteer hosts are now CLOSED

Keep an eye out in January 2022 for your chance to volunteer with the Host Program next SummerFest.
