Diamond Jubilee Campaign

In 2017, our Diamond Jubilee Redevelopment Campaign was launched to celebrate the 60 year anniversary of the purchase of Gladstone Terrace by the Graduate Union.

The Diamond Jubilee Campaign is to support expansion of our Graduate House to include:

– 11 upper floors and 5 basements

– 136 ensuite residential accommodation rooms

– a large café opening onto Grattan Street

– larger resident-only rest and recreation spaces

– function and meeting spaces including a fixed theatrette and editing suite

– basement gym, car parking and bicycle racks

Almost all collegiate accommodation options in Australia are primarily for undergraduates.

The colleges offering dual accommodation face the challenge of maintaining cohesion between two groups – undergraduates and postgraduates – with differing priorities, needs and experiences.

Graduate House, the only solely postgraduate college in Victoria suited to the needs of the postgraduate student, has long waiting lists and is unable in its current form, to meet the market demands of postgraduate collegiate accommodation.

The Diamond Jubilee Redevelopment will double our provision of a mature, supportive and safe collegiate environment for postgraduate students and visiting academics.

We are calling for champions of learning to pledge their support and help us achieve this goal by donating now.

Our Diamond Jubilee Campaign is about addressing the transformation of education with the necessary support systems. For the fortunate graduates who live at Graduate House, negative situational factors are greatly minimised through inclusiveness and the provision of healthy meals, utilities and amenities. Graduate House provides postgraduate students with a unique and appropriately balanced lifestyle customised to their distinctive needs.
