From your fully-furnished apartment at Metro Student Accommodation, it’s a 10-minute tram ride to La Trobe University and a 20-minute tram ride to RMIT Bundoora Campus East. Keep a bike in the safe storage for exploring close to home, then walk one minute to the nearest tram stop for the 50-minute ride into central Melbourne. Check out the incredible exhibitions at Australia’s largest art museum, the National Gallery of Victoria, or treat your inner foodie to a tour of gourmet Queen Victoria Market.
In the afternoon, come home to your private bedroom. Rifle through the fridge for something to eat, then take your books down from the shelves and settle in at your bedroom desk. Use the free broadband internet to research a paper, or browse your social media pages whenever you need a break. Whether you’re studying or relaxing, reverse cycle cooling and heating keeps your home comfortable, while the outdoor courtyard is the perfect place to clear your head when you’re done.
Later, step into your private bathroom for a quick shower, then drop your clothes off at the on-site laundry. Wander up the road to Reservoir Spices market to stock up on the ethnic ingredients you need to whip up a feast in the shared kitchen. Spend the rest of the evening hanging out in the communal lounge, or hop on the tram for the five-minute ride to Preston. Try ultra-hip bar The Raccoon Club for craft beer and cocktails, or make the most of the fine weather in the garden at Stolberg Beer Café.
