International students congregate throughout the week at The Couch, based at The Salvation Army Melbourne Project 614’s Hamodava Cafe. The Couch links students to support services, information and creates an environment to socialise, interact and engage with like-minded individuals. The Couch operates from 5pm to 9pm, Monday to Thursday.
The Couch provides a safe, non-commercial lounge space for international students in Melbourne that allows students to connect with support services and information on a range of issues including housing, employment, counselling, student services, legal aid, and more. It creates an environment where students can engage, socialise and interact, which will contribute to their positive experience whilst studying in Melbourne.
The Couch also facilitates cultural exchange between local young people and international students though social activities such as footy nights, movie sessions and other activities held within the centre.
