Venue Allocation

Please note: Given the current national and state restrictions due to COVID-19, UHT needs to postpone our Venue Allocation processes until we have more information about how current and future restrictions will impact on our programming and ability to hire the venues.

If you have questions or concerns about this, please contact UHT Artistic Director, Xanthe Beesley – artistic@union.unimelb.edu.au

During semester time, venues are allocated to student theatre groups through a venue allocation process. Theatre groups may apply for 1 or 2 week seasons in either the Union Theatre or the Guild Theatre.

Venue allocation is run in April and October for the following semester. All currently affiliated groups will be notified when venue allocation has been opened and the application forms will be available online.

Venue Allocation is currently closed
