How do I book a room at a Library?


Possibility one of THE most irritating things in a library, is when people leave their pens and books on tables as a way of reserving a table. Instead of doing that, why not book a study room online?

You can book study rooms in libraries through the ‘BookIt’ system. These rooms are perfect for study groups! Here’s a step by step tutorial on how to do it. It’s all online, and it’s super easy.

Lecture recordings, y u no work


Edit: Lecture recordings should be working now! Also, some lectures may not have been recorded between 11am Tues 9 September – 12pm today Wed 10 September. More info about that here:








I’m not sure if lectures have been recording since the system went down yesterday evening, because my lecturers haven’t been able to get the recording thing working today.

Keep an eye on 13 MELB’s facebook/twitter for updates about the situation.

If you’re thinking of applying for exchange, you’ll want to read this blog post! This post was written by 2nd year Arts student, Reanna Clark who is now off on exchange. She also runs her own awesome blog, You’ll Move Mountains. Check it out!


Bored with life at Melbourne Uni? I can’t imagine you would be, but if you have an itch to explore the world during your time here, then Global Mobility is your answer!

The Global Mobility website offers all the information you need about getting the most out of your UniMelb experience with an international focus. While the site does offer information about single overseas subjects, today I will be focusing on the application process for exchange.

Trust me when I say it is a long, complicated process! However, it looks as if Global Mobility has changed and the process is now mostly online! You young whipper snappers don’t have to kill a million trees like I did back in my day.

1/3 of a semester down

We say it every semester, but it’s crazy how fast the semester is flying by. I don’t even know where the past 4 weeks have gone! It’s all been a big blur to me.

Things in Daphane-land are going well. This semester is shaping up to be one of my favourite/most enjoyable semesters at uni, which is just what I needed after semester 1, aka the worst semester in the history of uni. My faith in uni and everything has been restored!
