Melbourne Plans Celebration of International Students in March 2024

Partnering with Ascott Australia, the Committee will for the second year, put on a welcome celebration full of events, activities and music at Fed Square on the first weekend in March, followed by a weeklong series of activities over multiple sites across Melbourne.

The event will bring together all students studying in Melbourne – both local and from abroad – by showcasing the culture and services our great city has to offer. Acknowledging international students are a critical part of the social, cultural and economic fabric of Melbourne, all Melburnians are invited to join in the celebration at Fed Square between 1-8 in March 2024.

To support the influx of students and families, Ascott Australia’s multiple brands, including serviced apartment brand Quest Apartment Hotels, inner-city accommodation brand Citadines, upscale, luxury apartment hotel brand Oakwood, and co-living brand lyf, offers student friends and families a range of accommodation options to make their stay in Melbourne comfortable and convenient.

“Committee for Melbourne recognises that providing effective support for our international students has a direct impact on Melbourne’s reputation. Attracting and retaining smart and globally connected talent is important for Melbourne including through contributions to the visitor economy, jobs and innovation and ultimately developing a global skills pipeline for Melbourne,” – CEO Committee for Melbourne Mark Melvin.

We look forward to seeing you there!
