We offer a peer support network to help first-year undergraduate students with their transition to uni life.
UniMentor is a university-wide program that aims to assist you to adjust to university life by matching you with mentors who can answer your questions. Your mentors are students in second year or above, studying the same or a similar course to you.
You will meet with your mentor in a small group of commencing students (mentees). You will first meet your mentor group at the UniMentor linkup for your degree-specific major or if you haven’t determined your major, then your “area of interest”. This group can meet regularly during semester – at times which you organise together – to socialise and discuss issues that may be concerning you. Contact can also take place by telephone or email if you prefer.

If you missed your UniMentor linkup as part of O-Week, it's not too late.
