Booking a space

Booking conditions

As a representative of a student club, you can book a "Central" teaching space or outdoor location under the following conditions and as stated in the Terms and Conditions:

  • Your club is affiliated with the student union, the Graduate Student Association or Melbourne University Sport;
  • You are the president, vice president, secretary or treasurer of that club. Other club members are unable to book venues on behalf of the club executives;
  • Your club is willing to bear any service costs incurred (including event support, AV support and cleaning as required).
  • The booking is for internal club activities only and not on behalf of an external organisation, or a club sponsor.

Turnaround times

Please plan your event ahead and try to give us at least three business days notice for regular bookings. Bookings that require event support or other support services will need to be requested eight business days prior to the event, so that we can organise services.

Venue Management endeavour to respond to booking requests in three business days, but may take longer to get back to you, depending on staffing and other priorities.

What if my club is not affiliated, or if I am not part of any club?

As the representative of a non-affiliated club or as an individual student, you have two options if you wish to book a centrally managed teaching space. You can either:

  1. Approach your teaching department to see if they are willing to make an internal booking on your behalf. There are generally no costs associated with internal departmental bookings during the day;
  2. Make an External Booking. Please note that there are costs associated with booking the venue as an external client.
