Allocate Plus is La Trobe University's timetabling system that allows you to select preferences for on-campus activities for your enrolled subjects such as tutorials, labs, seminars and workshops. You can tailor your timetable to your personal needs.
When making changes to your enrolment, you need to wait one hour after you have confirmed your enrolment in a subject before you can allocate yourself to activities.
If you are accessing Allocate Plus from a mobile or tablet device, click the menu icon and select 'enrolment' to view your subjects.
Are you enrolled in Summer 1 and Summer 2 subjects?
You can allocate yourself directly into your preferred activity times for Summer 2 and Summer 3 subjects. There is no preference entry period for these teaching periods.
If there is only one option for an activity, you'll automatically be allocated to that time.

In some instances you may experience an unavoidable timetable clash. Please contact your faculty office to discuss approving any clashes.
How does Allocate Plus work?
Before a teaching period begins, students need to select their preferences for class times for all enrolled subjects. Allocate Plus will then assign students class times to create the best possible clash free timetable according to the student's selected preferences. After this sorting process, students can self allocate themselves to class times and move to new time slots if there are available spaces. This is the self allocation and adjustment period.
Students can also view class times for other subjects at any time. This is useful for students to see how other subjects fit into their timetable of enrolled subjects.
