Life on campus

Life at Murdoch isn’t just about getting to class on time and studying for exams. Getting involved on campus is the best way to meet new people, connect with other students and make the most of your time at Murdoch.

Join fun activities, events and experiences

We’ve designed a social program to help you make the most of your free time and see and experience as much of Perth and WA as possible.

North West trip

The North West Trip will be the highlight for many of you who decide to come to Murdoch. In this fun-filled bus trip to the rugged North West of Western Australia you will cover close to 2500 miles or 4000 kilometres across plains of wildflowers and the vast outcrop that is the outback Australia. 

You’ll be able to take in such breathtaking sights as the Karijini National Park and the World Heritage-listed Monkey Mia and Ningaloo Reef, while taking a well-earned break from your studies and enjoying the company of your fellow students.

Full details will be provided at Orientation.
