Make your home south of the river in Melbourne and take the tram 30 minutes to classes at the University of Melbourne, or cycle in around 20 minutes. Walk 20 minutes to La Trobe University City Campus, or drive 30 minutes to La Trobe University’s main campus. You won’t have to go far from home to experience the buzz of Melbourne’s nightlife with Southbank and the city centre a short hop from your door. Use the trams and buses to explore Melbourne’s neighbourhoods with shopping trips along Chapel Street or beach strolls at St Kilda.
Come home, say hello to the friendly staff on reception and head to the bar to catch up with friends over a beer or a game of pool. When it’s time to get some revision done, return to your room and relax on your bed as you read through your notes. Pick a budget-friendly four-bed dormitory, with your own storage locker and a shared bathroom, or set yourself up in a double or twin room with ensuite bathroom. Whichever you choose, air conditioning and heating will mean you’ll always be comfortable.
Your linen and towels are provided and you can make meals or hot drinks in the shared kitchen, eating in the dining space as you get to know fellow residents. Breakfast is included in your rent along with tea and coffee, and you can enjoy sharing a meal each week prepared by the Urban Central staff. With rooms and common areas cleaned daily you’ll be able to make the most of your time to study or explore Melbourne.
