Universities occupy a public space, with community expectations of a broader contribution to intellectual, social and economic life.
Our nationally significant cultural collections and related activities support teaching and research in the University. Many of these resources are available to a broader community through education programs and public-access events on campus:
- The arts at Melbourne: cultural collections, galleries, museums, Melbourne Theatre Company, music, and academic and literary publishing
- Public lecture/event listing - see the maps and locations page for help with finding lecture venues
- Indigenous studies, a comprehensive listing of, and link to, all indigenous related activities at the University of Melbourne
- Asia at Melbourne, a listing of all Asian related academic subjects, centres and support facilities at the University of Melbourne
- Languages at Melbourne: courses and subjects in linguistics and modern Asian and European languages, plus the research and teaching Melbourne offers in multicultural communication, English literacy and ancient Greek and Latin
- Open Day is an annual event in August. Come to any Melbourne University campus and discover what opportunities are available to you
Some University campus facilities and services are available for hire by local and interest-based communities. These include a conference management service, venue hire and sporting facilities.
