Hey everyone. My name is Hugo, and today I’m going to take you on a little tour of RMIT’s Bundoora campus. Located just north of the city, Bundoora is home to lots of RMIT’s education, engineering and health and science programs.
It’s super easy to get to the Bundoora campus as well. The 86 tram from the city is going to drop you right on the front door. Plenty of shops and cafes just across the road as well.
There’s plenty of student parking on site and there’s even a free bus service to take you around the campus until the late hours of the night.
Bundoora campus is located on Wurundjeri country and has six scarred trees on it that are a reminder of harvesting techniques used by Aboriginal Australian and Torres Strait Islander people. The Keelbundoora Scarred Trees and Heritage Trail is a 2K walk around the campus and it’s a beautiful way to clear your head between classes.
The Ngarara Willim Centre offers a wide variety of facilities and services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. The students use the space to study, build connections and friendships, and engage in social and cultural activities.
Bundoora is divided into an east and west campus by Plenty Road amongst 400,000 square metres of parkland. It’s even got its own lake. There is also a barbecue area if you’d like to hang out with some friends and take a study break.
If you are thinking of living on campus, then Walert House or Uni Lodge at Bundoora has got everything you could possibly need. The kitchens and dining rooms are fully equipped. And there’s even cinema rooms for movie night. And there’s plenty of social spaces too. If you are interested in meeting new people or hanging out with friends at one of their monthly events.
So, this is the RMIT Health Clinic. Whether you are after psychology or mental health support, all the way to Chinese medicine and needling. The staff and students here are going to be able to help you out. And you don’t even need a doctor’s reference to get an appointment. How cool is that?
Now, due to all the open, green, beautiful space at Bundoora, there’s plenty of room for sports facilities. Whether you are into competitive sports, outdoor adventuring or just hitting the gym, you’ll find it at the RMIT Sports Centre.
The gym is fully equipped. There is a cycling studio, volleyball, badminton. And of course, indoor basketball. Whoa!
Soccer pitch is right here. Tennis court is just over there. And volleyball court is just beyond that. There’s also a FIFA grade soccer pitch, hockey pitch, competition standard tennis courts, 400 meter athletics track and an AFL oval the size of Etihad Stadium. It’s not even close [chuckles].
And for when that assignment is due next week, there are over 14 different study locations around the campus. How good is that?
So, this is our amazing library, where you can come to get access to study materials. There are also skill advisors and librarians on site to give you a hand with your studies. Or you can try a peer support group, where you can connect with other students, and they can help you with your coursework or your academic confidence.
RUSU is the name for the RMIT University Student Union. And they’re responsible for fighting for student rights, as well as fostering a sense of community around RMIT. They also run the clubs and associations, of which there are over 96. So, I’m sure that’ll be something to pique your interest.
And for current students, RMIT Connect is always ready and available to answer all your student questions and needs.
Well, I’ve hope you’ve enjoyed today’s tour of RMIT Bundoora campus. If you have any more questions about studying here, get in contact with Study at RMIT. Hope to see you soon.
