Free Pads and Tampons at the Study Melbourne Hub

Periods are a natural part of life, which means pads and tampons are a necessity not a luxury. Study Melbourne has a new program making pads and tampons freely available to women when they need them.

This initiative is designed to support women’s participation in education, sports and everyday activities and reduce the discomfort, stigma and anxiety associated with periods.

You will find free sanitary pads and tampons located in the bathrooms in the Study Melbourne Hub, 17 Hardware Lane, Melbourne.

We Speak All Languages

We are committed to supporting you to communicate in your preferred language (other than English).

An interpreter can be organised to assist with communication and an interpreter translates messages, concepts, and ideas from one language into another language.

For free access to an interpreter, you can either:

  • Call 131 450 and ask them to call Study Melbourne Hub, Victoria on 1800 056 449 or;
  • You can contact Study Melbourne Hub directly and we can call the interpreting service on your behalf.
