Social events and activities

University isn’t just about hard work and study. It's also important to take time to enjoy yourself.

One of the best things about studying overseas is making friends with people from all over the world. And making friends is so much easier when you have things in common.

Join a student-run club to find people who share your interests or grow your professional network by joining in an academic society related to your degree. You can also participate in a range of on-campus programs and activities or get active with a University sporting team.

At La Trobe, you’ll create friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.

Clubs and societies

There are more than 90 active student-run clubs and academic societies across our campuses. Joining one is a great way to meet other students with similar interests – from archaeology to swing dancing. If there isn’t a club that appeals to you, you can always start one yourself.
