Established in 1976 by students, for students, Murdoch Guild is an advocacy, support and service organisation, run independently from the university. Murdoch Guild is governed by a democratically elected student council and provides student representation across major university academic and governance committees. We represent your student voice and work to ensure students are the first consideration in university decision-making. We also provide a range of education and welfare support services through the Student Assist Office including advice on academic appeals, Food Bank access, legal referrals, tax help, tenancy services, tutoring and support with Centrelink Issues.
Additionally through our website, Student Assist runs an employment and accommodation registry and the book subsidy scheme, providing students in need with the funds to cover their textbooks each semester. While student advocacy and welfare is our core role, the Murdoch Guild also exists to make university life more fun – uni should not just be about studying or pulling hair out around exam time!
By running numerous events throughout the year, we ensure that there is always something to look forward to on campus. Some of our annual events include Stamp Out Stress Day, the Guild Ball and Multicultural Day. We also support over 100 different Guild registered clubs, societies and collectives through the provision of grants and assistance from our Student Projects Office. For aspiring writers, the student magazine METIOR is a great way to get published and build your portfolio.
Murdoch Guild manages a wide range of outlets and facilities. They include Café Kadjininy, the Tavern and the Volunteeering Hub. If you just need a quick caffeine fix or need a break from studying, Murdoch Guild has you covered!
