Medley Hall is a small, secular college within the University of Melbourne, located on a beautiful tree-lined street a short walk from the University and close to the City. It provides 74 students with an opportunity to enjoy and contribute to an inclusive, supportive community.
Our community encourages every student to find ways of supporting the endeavours of others within both the College and the wider world. Consistent with this encouragement is Medley’s concern to foster environmental awareness and the practice of sustainable living, both necessary for developing and continuing the well-being of communities throughout the world.
Medley Hall will be participating in the Unimelb Colleges Open House on Saturday, 21 May. Our doors will be open from 12pm to 4pm, and our student residents and staff would love to meet you and show you around the college.
If you are unable to make it on 21 May, you can either book an in-person tour or request a virtual tour of Medley. Register here.
Medley Hall Fee Remission Bursaries
About the Program
Medley awards over $300k in bursaries each year to eligible students. On average, 1 in 3 students at Medley Hall receive some form of financial assistance from the College to help with residential fees.
It is our aim to make a place at Medley Hall available to students who have been accepted into their course at the University of Melbourne and who would otherwise be unable to experience the benefits of living in a college community. The fee-remission program is largely funded by the Cybec Foundation and comes with the expectation that those who benefit will reciprocate by taking on responsibilities within the College and the wider community. It is our hope and expectation that students who are helped in this way will in their turn "pass it on" when they are able to do so in the future.
Fee remission bursaries are awarded on the basis of financial need in order to meet the 'gap' between income such as: other scholarships and grants; personal contribution; parental/guardian contribution; and Centrelink, and college fees and living expenses.
Some bursaries are only available to students enrolled at the University of Melbourne and/or have other eligibility requirements. Check the details on the individual bursaries and scholarships for details.
Applications are subject to a means test developed in collaboration with Student Financial Aid.

- Submit an Application Form for residency at Medley Hall.
