2017 marks the DIAMOND JUBILEE of Graduate House.

Our Gladstone terraces were purchased in 1957 and went on to house generations of postgraduates – students and visiting academics – providing them with an ideal living environment.

Graduate House is one of only a handful of postgraduate only colleges worldwide despite an increasing postgraduate student population – with over 20,000 postgraduate students enrolled each year at The University of Melbourne alone.

The Graduate Union ROARING Twenties Fundraising Gala aimed to raise funds for The Graduate Union’s proposed residential redevelopment for postgraduate students on the corner of Leicester and Grattan Streets, Carlton, set behind our stately terraces. Learn more about our Capital Fundraising campaign.

We are very thankful for the incredible generosity of the following Gala and auction donors. Click on the logos to view their websites.

We are delighted to acknowledge and thank Snappy Pics (established 1983), for taking professional photographs of our guests on the night of the 60th Year Diamond Jubilee Fundraising Gala (2nd September, 2017). For 5 x 7″ copies of photos ($15.00 plus $3.50 postage and handling) or high-resolution digital copies ($25.00), please contact Alex Censor on or 0418 395 300 with the photo number.

Your sponsorship of achievable and real action, as well as your active involvement, is imperative. Sponsorship of the GU’s approach to the UN SDGs is one way of demonstrating that you are a responsible business and a global citizen.
