Rowden White Library


If you miss visiting the Rowden White Library (aka The Rowdy) during your uni years, you’re missing out. We’ve got everything! (Except things for studying. Please do not study.)

The Rowdy is a recreation library for all students with a diverse collection of books (including non-fiction, fiction, SF/fantasy, romance, and crime), comics/graphic novels, eBooks/eAudiobooks, computers (gaming and regular), VR headsets, Playstation 5, magazines, puzzles, board games, a room full of bean bags to snooze on, and a big TV! And it's all free.  Printing, binding and laminating services are available also, for a small fee that covers materials.


You must have a valid Unimelb student or staff card with you in order to borrow. When renewing your items online, your login is the 14-digit number at the bottom of your student/staff card. Your pin or password is the one you chose when you registered at the library.

Come up and see us on level 2 & 3 of the Student Pavilion on Monash Road!
