FROM THE HEART OF MELBOURNE TO REGIONAL VICTORIA
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.
