The new Student Precinct will be a vibrant centre of activity where all students have access to social, cultural and community opportunities. It will also be the home of student-led organisations the University of Melbourne Student Union (UMSU), UMSU International and the Graduate Student Association (GSA) and their associated services, spaces and activities, providing students with greater ease of access to events and facilities.
Co-creation will be the cornerstone of this exciting initiative, with the end-user – our students – partnering with the University as active contributors, decision makers and owners of the Student Precinct Project.Sign up for updates

Co-creation is the process of shared design, where students and the University jointly create and own the Student Precinct Project. Genuine co-creation requires a commitment from both parties to engage in a true partnership to drive mutually beneficial outcomes. The co-creation of the Student Precinct will provide students with the opportunity to be part of the governance, design and activation of the space, and to inform key decision-making. Co-creation initiatives will be embedded into every stage of the planning, to ensure students from across the University are actively contributing and influencing the direction of the Project ongoing.
