Travelling to the Parkville Campus

The Parkville Campus is located 3 km north of Melbourne's city centre.


The campus is located on Royal Parade in Parkville just north of Melbourne. Parking is available in the surrounding streets but not on campus. Parking meters and restrictions must be observed.


The campus is serviced by the number 19 tram that travels along Elizabeth Street/Royal Parade. A tram trip to the campus from Melbourne takes ~15 minutes. Get off at the Walker Street stop.


Catch the Upfield line train from Flinders Street Station to Royal Park Railway Station (~5 minute walk from the zoo).

Accommodation options

As the University is very accessible from the city, any city hotel would be a convenient place to stay. However, should you choose to stay in Parkville, a discounted rate has been made available for symposium registrants at the Vibe Hotel, adjacent to the University.
