The Our Campus in the 21st Century framework was developed with direct input from our community to better understand the diverse needs of everyone who connects with our campuses, whether at Parkville, Southbank, Burnley, Creswick, Dookie, Shepparton or Werribee, and coming soon Fishermans Bend.

Guided by this vision, we are transforming our campuses to embrace the 21st century.

Our Campuses


The University of Melbourne acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands on which of our campuses are situated.

Our campuses are a central part of the University and provide touchstones for research, teaching and learning, and engagement. They share a vision of sustainability, accessibility and inclusion. We have seven campus locations across Melbourne and regional Victoria committed to developing world-changing research, inspiring future leaders and enhancing our communities.

Each campus contributes to our research, teaching and learning, and engagement in distinct and impactful ways. From our iconic Parkville campus, the University can also be found across Melbourne and Victoria with campuses dedicated to advancing arts and music, horticulture, forest sciences, agriculture, rural health and veterinary sciences.


Revolving around the oldest building the Quadrangle, the Parkville campus has a distinctive inward facing building design and is continually expanding southwards. A campus which houses historically significant spaces such as the System Garden, the Old Arts building, Union House and South Lawn, Parkville also features modern architecture such as the Melbourne School of Design and the Arts West building. Parkville invites a diversity of collaborators working to address issues challenging society.


Help Shape Our Campuses

We are transforming our campuses for the 21st century and we want your input.

As well as being the home of first class research and over 45,000 students, our campuses are interconnected parts of the communities in which they are found. Through engagement, infrastructure, research and teaching and learning, we have an impact on the culture and educational experience of everyone who comes in contact with the university.

We developed the OC21 Framework with direct input from our community to better understand the diverse needs of everyone who connects with our campuses, whether at Parkville, Southbank, Burnley, Creswick, Dookie, Shepparton or Werribee. Through this framework we are committed to delivering the themes of technology and tradition, synergy and innovation, quality experiences, spaces and places, and a culture of inclusion.

Why Your Voice is Important

Our campuses are built to serve our community.

We want your feedback in order to learn more about how you use our campuses and how research, learning, social and public environments can better meet your needs. We all have a role to play - planners, governments, business partners, local communities, students and staff.

We'll continue to work with you as we move towards a shared vision for our campus in the 21st century.
