Tenured Study Space Application Form

Tenured Study Spaces (TSSs) are available in the Doug McDonell Building for currently enrolled University of Melbourne graduate students. Priority is given to students who are in the final stages or other important stages of their course, such as the last 6–12 months for PhD students or the last 3–6 months for master’s and graduate diploma students.

The TSS area has 24-hour access to desks, a kitchenette and a student printer. Each desk has a computer and storage for study items (such as notes or textbooks). They are allocated to successful applicants for 6 months only. Students can apply for an extension of up to 3 months for master’s students and 6 months for PhD students. Students are eligible to apply for one extension only. Tenured Study Spaces are available only once per degree.

Master’s and graduate diploma students who are completing their study more than 6 months from the date of application may be requested to re-apply at a later time. PhD students who are completing their study more than 12 months from the date of application may be requested to re-apply at a later time. Special circumstances are considered on an individual basis.

All applications are considered on a monthly basis by the GSA Services Team.
