Victoria University has campuses in the heart of Melbourne city, and in Melbourne's cosmopolitan western suburbs. We also have a campus in a vibrant, central area of Sydney.

VU's campuses are easily accessible by public transport. The VU shuttle bus will take you between the campus and train station at Footscray and St Albans campuses.

Our purpose-built learning environments include modern science labs, research centres, libraries, and digital equipment. There are also many inviting spaces to study, meet friends, keep fit, and relax.

To keep the VU community safe and to play our part in containing the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we are currently running most classes remotely. Explore our campuses online to see where you’ll learn when we return to campus.
