Student Newsletters

ABP sends out two e-newsletters to all our students and subscribed staff members. Both newsletters contain information about upcoming events and opportunities, important dates and FAQs, relevant to the specific student cohorts.


Fabricate is a fortnightly newsletter which is sent to students in all MSD graduate programs.

Habitat is published fortnightly and is sent to all students in the Bachelor of Environments.


Guidelines to submitting news items


ABP welcomes submissions of news items from university staff. All submissions should be relevant to the ABP student cohort and may include events such as info sessions, expos, student events like lunches/bbqs, services to students, workshops, and application deadlines for scholarships/courses - which have specific timelines around an organized event/service, as well as specific enrolment announcements from the Faculty.

  • All advertising for specific employment should be directed to Careers and Employment in the first instance. Employment opportunities that are directly relevant to Bachelor of Environments and MSD disciplines that are advertised through Careers and Employment will be promoted in the student newsletters.
  • We cannot accept commercial advertising, promotional and sales material as news items. The University of Melbourne Student Union may be able to assist you with your promotions.
  • Each submission is screened to ensure that it is concise, factual, and appropriate for the relevant cohort. Emotive or controversial language and statements will be removed. Submissions are checked for spelling, grammar and clarity. Minor edits may be carried out.
  • Submissions of over 100 words may be edited to reduce the word count.
  • If the notice requires significant editing, the author may be contacted and asked to rewrite the notice or to provide further information.
