Other information

GDR is a not-for-profit community radio station (95.7 FM), run largely by volunteers.  It caters especially for seniors, with music and programmes from earlier decades: “Yesterday’s music today”.

The station is on Glen Huntly Road just east of Grange Road.  It is about a 5 minute walk from the Glen Huntly train station and a 1 or 2-minute walk from the No 67 tram stop at the intersection of Grange Road and Glen Huntly Road (Stop No 62 on the Melbourne University to Carnegie tram route)

GDR is on the first floor; access is by stairs only.

Members registered for the tour should meet on the footpath at the front door or, if the weather is inclement, upstairs at the GDR reception desk.

Cost: gold coin donation

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Login to the U3APP.org.au website.
  • Go to the Courses & Enrolling page.
  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.
  • OR is the course shown as FULL?
    • Click on WAITLIST.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.

Via the Office: after bookings have opened
