Social Life for Students

The College has a rich and varied social life that starts in O Week (more of that on the O Week page) and runs throughout the year.  Some of the activities we run include:


  • Formal dinners: These are held at the beginning and end of each semester. They are an opportunity to dress up for a special meal and we often invite a guest to speak;

  • The Brunswick Street Ball: This is fast becoming an institution, usually held in Semester Two and attracts both past and current students and staff;

  • House gatherings: We encourage each house to organise social activities throughout the year. These are generally informal affairs as the houses take it in turn to host the rest of the College.

  • Dine-out dinners: Once a fortnight we explore different cuisines on offer in our local area ranging from Indian curry or Vietnamese nights to the vast array of pubs hidden away in Fitzroy.

  • From time to time we take also take day trips out to the country to places like the Alexandra Picnic Races.
