The Graduate Union
including Graduate House and University Graduates Club
The Graduate Union of the University of Melbourne Incorporated is an Association of graduates and postgraduates who wish to retain close links with The University of Melbourne and is affiliated to the University as a uniquely postgraduate college. The Graduate Union offers club, dining and residential facilities in addition to social and educational opportunities for its members at a low annual subscription.
The principal objects of The Graduate Union as set out in its Statement of Purposes are:

(c) to foster academic, educational and cultural relations between graduates (d) to provide a corporate association to carry out these objects
(e) to promote the welfare of the University of Melbourne HISTORY
The Graduate Union originated as the Melbourne University Association and was established in 1911. Afffiliated with the University Union between 1938 and 1952 as the Graduates' Section of the Union, since 1953 it has functioned as The Graduate Union. It became affiliated as a college of The University of Melbourne in 1971 and an Association under the Associations Incorporation Act in 1991.
THE GRADUATE COUNCIL
The Council consists of a President, a Vice-President with twelve members elected by the membership for three-year terms, two nominees of the Vice-Chancellor and up to two co-opted members. A Chairman is appointed annually from among the elected members. The Council controls The Graduate Union through a number of committees or boards.

Whereas the Alumni Relations Unit is part of and administered by the University, The Graduate Union is an autonomous organization.
Graduate House was opened in 1962 as a small hall of residence for postgraduate workers, whether Australian or from overseas, predominantly for those engaged in higher degree studies or research. Graduate House is controlled by a board acting for the Graduate Council. Graduate House is the residential facility and administrative base of The Graduate Union.
Graduate House has been developed in successive stages and now houses approximately 116 postgraduate residential members on a "dinner, bed and breakfast" basis. A variety of accommodation is available ranging from family suites suitable for visiting academics and Faculty visitors, student accommodation with ensuite bathroom and more modest student accommodation with shared bathrooms. Residents come from many countries and other states and the atmosphere is one of cultural as well as academic sharing.
Graduate House also provides a corporate centre for the entire Graduate Union membership by way of dining-room, common-rooms, library and other facilities for public and private entertainment.
Conference and function facilities
Graduate House has extensive conference, seminar and function facilities with state-of-the-art audio visual equipment.
Members are encouraged to hold private functions, with the dining room capable of seating up to 300 guests. Smaller parties can also be accommodated.
