is a First Nations word, meaning friend in the Woi-wurrung language of the Wurundjeri nation. 

RMIT Kirrip, grounded by the practice of celebrating diversity on Country, is a student-led community, created to welcome, guide and connect our students to enhance their transformative time at RMIT. Developed under the guidance of RMIT First Nation collaborators. 
RMIT Kirrip fosters community minded and engaged students by encouraging connectedness, contribution and a sense of belonging, through offering enriching and positive experiences that are co-designed and delivered by students that allow exploration of our shared values, connection to place, emerging ideas and making new friends.  
There are three main offerings to RMIT Kirrip – experiences, conversations and a dedicated on-campus community space.   
Melbourne Experiences  

Each Semester, the Kirrip team curates a program of both online and in-person experiences so that you get to do something new and meet other students at the same time.  Led by students and for students, these are a great break from studying, become part of the RMIT community and broaden your university social network.  Examples of past programs include: ice-skating; Melbourne international film festival;  clay making workshop. 

Little School of Student Life  
In 2022, we launch the Little School of Student Life: a program that will bring together burgeoning talent that exists across RMIT to deliver inspiring panels, conversations, and activities. The Student Life team provides opportunities for students to come together and talk about things that matter to them. Meet others in the RMIT community by sharing ideas a meal, a cup of tea in a very inspiring, thought-provoking way. 

Kirrip community space 

In 2022, there will be a dedicated space on campus (Covid restrictions permitting) for the community to gather. This will be a hub for all Student Life activities, where Student Leaders facilitate activities and other programs across the year.
