Student 'Drop In' Sessions - May 2019

To give all students the chance to have their voices heard, the project team staged a series of 'drop in' sessions in May this year.

Co-creation is the cornerstone of the New Student Precinct. Throughout the life cycle of the project, students have been asked to give their feedback on everything from study space, to green space, and even rest and relaxation. The feedback of the University of Melbourne student community has provided great insight and helped shape the final detailed design of the Precinct.

On May 27 and May 30 2019, students from all faculties were invited to take part in a series of student 'drop-in' sessions. These sessions gave participating students a chance to take a look at the Precinct design as a whole, to see how student feedback has been reflected in the design, and to give any additional feedback they may have to the design team.

Students from all faculties were welcome to attend these drop-ins. Members of the Student Experience Reference Group (SERG), a group comprised entirely of students who are dedicated to reviewing co-creation initiatives for the benefit of the student community, were also invited to take part. All drop-ins were led by our principle architects, Lyons Architecture.

We are excited to share some of the excellent co-creation feedback we have received in the coming months. A huge thank you to all students who participated in our May drop-ins.
