General Information

The core business of the University is its own teaching, learning and research. During University teaching periods, the use of all rooms and facilities are reserved for these and other business-critical functions. However during vacation periods, many of the University's rooms and facilities may be available for hire to approved external clients for conferences, lectures and symposia the University regards as relevant to its own goals.

The university has many different types of venues ranging from large lecture theatres to smaller meeting rooms and some multifunctional spaces.

Venue Management are responsible for arranging all non-teaching related bookings in centrally allocated teaching spaces on the Parkville Campus. Additional options are available through affiliated partners or other areas of the University.
