Research which College is right for you then read below for more information on how to apply. Please note that applications for Semester 1 2019 may begin to close from 31 October 2018.
* You can provide required documents at a later date by emailing them through, once they are available, to the admissions office of the College which currently holds your application (usually, your first preference). If your school prefers to provide confidential reference letters, they can email the document(s) directly to the College. Please note, however, that your application remains incomplete until these documents are supplied.
VTAC offers are made mid-January each year. You will be advised of the outcome of your College application that week. Overseas and Graduate university offers generally come out before VTAC offers and College offers vary depending on the College. The College that holds your application will inform you of your application status.
For some Colleges, a student may be given a provisional offer in December. To find out more, please contact the individual Colleges directly.
If you are not offered a place by your College of preference, they may ask if you wish to be placed on their waiting list or be referred to your other College preferences that are still considering applicants through the Intercollegiate Pool process.
If at any stage you wish to withdraw your application, please inform the College that holds your application immediately.
The purpose of the Intercollegiate Pool is to ensure that applicants who have not been offered residency at their College of preference can be considered for a place in another College in a fair and orderly manner and according to the applicant’s order of preferences. All applications from students who have been offered a place at the University of Melbourne or other accepted Universities (RMIT, ACU, Monash Parkville Campus) who have not been offered a place at the College of their first preference will be offered the chance to have their application sent to the Intercollegiate Pool which runs from mid-January to mid-February each year.

The Colleges have places available for a large number of students each year, however not every applicant will be offered a place. We highly recommend that you look into other suitable options such as student apartments and share housing in case you are not offered a place by one of the Colleges. Check The University of Melbourne Accommodation Website for the options on offer.
