Find your way around campus

All RMIT rooms are numbered as follows: Building number. Floor number. Room number. So if your class is in '080.04.020' that means you need to go to building 80, fourth floor, room 20.

You'll find building locations on Campus maps and floor and room signage inside each building. You can also download the RMIT App for easy access to campus maps on your phone.
