The University of Melbourne offers more than a place to live. Take the stress out of securing safe and welcoming accommodation by joining our education-focused residential communities.

Murrup Barak can support you to apply for on-campus accommodation which includes University-owned student accommodation and affiliated residential colleges.

As an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person studying at the University, you may be eligible to secure a spot in accommodation and receive financial support. Let us know if you are planning to live on-campus when you apply to the University and we can make accommodation recommendations. Our Outreach team can also provide you with information about off-campus living if you are interested.
