Campus Development

Our commitment to the transformative impact of education and research is grounded in the life of the city, region and nation we serve.

Founded in 1853 with a commitment to contribute to the civic and intellectual life of Melbourne, our Parkville campus began as a cluster of buildings at the city’s fringe. Today, the University of Melbourne encompasses six additional specialist campuses and anchors three urban innovation precincts: Melbourne Biomedical Precinct, Melbourne Arts Precinct and Melbourne Connect.

Embedded in our place of origin, we aspire to a shared global future with the communities we serve. Our institutional strategy to 2030, Advancing Melbourne, articulates the University’s commitment to partner in the future of Melbourne as a thriving and sustainable global city, and to embrace our place in Australia and the world. The development and design of our campuses is guided by the University’s Estate Plan, in line with the aspirations of Advancing Melbourne.
