Welcome to the Events Hire Store



From 1 March 2024, items from the Events Hire Store will be charged based on item(s) hired.

Delivery fees will only apply for non Parkville locations.

The new hire fee schedule is expected to ease the pressure on the team with deliveries, as we noticed a high number of ordered items not used during events.

Cost of hire is listed in item description.


New Delivery Fee for non Parkville locations

  • Southbank/Burnley: $40
  • Werribee: $80
  • Other locations: Contact team to discuss 


Fees will apply (where applicable) for cleaning, collection and late orders - see Additional Fees (below) for more information.

Please note that the hire is only available for University use only. 


To change your order:

  1. Email unimelb-support@unimelb.edu.au or call 834 42469 and provide your order number
  2. A member of Unimelb-Support team will delete your order in the system
  3. Please resubmit new order with correct details

Unfortunately we are unable to modify your order in the system.


Additional Fees

Late Orders 

A late order fee of $50 per order will apply for orders not requested via the booking system.


Cancellation fee of the full order will apply if less than 24 hours' notice is provided.


cleaning fee of $20 per order will apply for any trestles returned in an unacceptable condition (ie dirty or sticky table top).


Please ensure that all furniture and event merchandise are returned to the drop off location prior to collection date. Trestles need to be folded and left as it was when delivered. A collection fee of $100 per order will be charged otherwise.
