Clayton Events

The Calendar of Events for the Clayton campus is an ever-changing behemoth. Orion, Centaurus and Ursa Colleges all run their own events, jointly run a few events, and help out occasionally with major events run by the Monash Student Association, TeamMONASH, and Monash Sport. Not to mention, there’s a massive array of activities and parties on campus at any given time!

With that in mind, here is a small selection of events confirmed for the Clayton non-residential colleges.
