Footscray University Town (FUT) is a joint initiative between Victoria University and Maribyrnong City Council to revitalise Footscray and deliver long lasting benefits to residents, businesses, workers and VU students and staff.

Through this initiative we will build on the existing strengths of Footscray and the University:

  • our leading sports facilities
  • our growing creative and recreational industries
  • our vibrant cultural diversity
  • our proud industrial heritage.

This will position Footscray as a university town. By working together we'll align University, business and community interests and activities. The FUT partners aim to open up new opportunities for employment, enterprise and investment throughout Melbourne’s west.
