Events and culture

Life at La Trobe isn’t simply about attending classes and hitting the books — there’s a lively culture lying in wait whenever you decide to come up for air. Getting involved is one of the best ways to live a well-balanced student life and become as a well-rounded, worldly graduate.


Vibrant and diverse

La Trobe is place that’s brimming with opportunities to explore your interests, socialise with like-minded people, or simply blow off some steam with your classmates.

Attend theatre shows, film screenings, visual art exhibitions and live music gigs. Indulge your tastebuds, or simply relax with friends and a drink at a café or bar. Broaden your mind by attending one of the regular public lectures and debates.


La Trobe student union

The student union hosts many a social and cultural event, as well as running Rabelais — the student magazine produced by students, for students since 1967.

There are also 100 student clubs and societies catering for interests ranging from gaming and theatre, to religion and politics. And if you don’t find something you like, you can always start a club of your own.

These are just some of the services provided. Make sure you find out more about the La Trobe Student Union.
