The close contact between staff and students on our specialist campus fosters a supportive community in the heart of Australia's top health and biomedical precinct.
Our neighbours include major hospitals, the University of Melbourne, the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, the Howard Florey Institute, CSL Limited, the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research and CSIRO's Division of Health Sciences.
Surrounded by parks, we’re a short tram ride from central Melbourne and within walking distance of the vibrant inner-city suburbs of Carlton and Brunswick, which have contributed much to Melbourne’s artistic and multicultural soul.
The campus is home to the Victorian College of Pharmacy, which was founded in 1881 and merged with Monash University in the early 1990s to create our faculty.
By car: We’re located on Royal Parade, an extension of Elizabeth Street, if coming from the city and heading north, and Sydney Road, if coming from Brunswick and heading south. (Melways reference, map 29, G12)
Parking is not available on campus, only in the surrounding streets – but note the meter times and parking restrictions on the street signs.
By tram: Take the number 19 (North Coburg) tram, which travels along Elizabeth Street, Royal Parade and Sydney Road. The trip from Melbourne takes about 15 minutes.
By train: Catch the Upfield line train from Flinders Street, Southern Cross or any of the City Loop stations to Royal Park Railway Station and walk through the park from there.
