Melbourne city campus

Melbourne City campus is located in the cosmopolitan heart of the “world’s most liveable city” and is surrounded by public transport, restaurants, cafes, theatres, galleries and parks.

Our City campus has 45,000 students studying in across all major interest areas. The campus has been an integral part of Melbourne's character for more than one hundred years.

Features and facilities

The Melbourne City campus thrives in the urban heart of the world’s most liveable city; surrounded by rich treasures – from restaurants and cafés to parks, markets and the State Library of Victoria.

Unlike other university campuses, it isn’t closed off, or surrounded by walls - City campus life is Melbourne city life.

The campus is accessible by public transport and provides key features such as libraries, study spaces, wi-fi, childcare and a bustling fitness centre.

RMIT’s facilities and buildings are constantly evolving and expanding to meet the demands of contemporary university life. Across the campus you’ll find new award-winning buildings like the Swanston Academic Building and the Design Hub, and outdoor recreational spaces including the Alumni Courtyard and the A’Beckett Urban Square.

There are plenty of cheap and healthy food and drink outlets offering breakfast, lunch, coffee, snacks and drinks. You’ll also be in walking distance to hundreds of local restaurants and cafes, Melbourne Central and QV food courts and the famous Queen Victoria Market.

RMIT A'Beckett Urban Square is officially open. RMIT A'Beckett Urban Square.

Melbourne is serviced by a well-developed network of trams, buses, trains and airports.

The closest train station to most City campus buildings is Melbourne Central Station on the City Loop.

From Flinders Street Station, you can join a connecting City Loop train service or any tram travelling up Swanston Street (see below).

RMIT’s City campus buildings span a large area of the north-east quarter of Melbourne’s central business district (CBD) and also extend over Victoria Street into Carlton. Driving directions and parking rules will vary depending on which building/s you need to visit.

There is no on-campus parking available for visitors to the University. However, there are a number of commercial car parks within a very short walk.
