Make friends at RMIT

RMIT Kirrip helps you connect with other students, explore Melbourne and talk about the things that matter to you.

Meeting new people can be weird and kind of awkward sometimes, so RMIT Kirrip is designed to help you ease in. Our Kirrip staff and volunteers span the social spectrum from introvert to extrovert, so whether you are shy and need a hand to find your flock or want to be directed to communities who share your interests or hobbies, there’s something for everyone.
