Getting there

Arts West (Building 148) is the home of the Bachelor of Arts. The building is located on the Royal Parade side of the Parkville campus and is accessible from Professor's Walk, Medical Road and the Baillieu Library.

Please follow the link for Disability Access information or contact us at arts-studentprograms@unimelb.edu.au for further assistance.

The building contains 24 modern, high-quality teaching spaces, a digital studio, a gallery and a fa├žade that displays images from the University's cultural collections.

Old Arts (Building 149) is located just across the walkway from Arts West and is one of the oldest buildings on campus. It features the iconic clock tower overlooking South Lawn.

Travelling to Parkville

We encourage you to use public transport, walk or ride as first options. If arriving at Stop 1 - Melbourne University on Swanston Street, staff will be able to direct you to the Arts West or Old Arts buildings.

If you do need to drive to the Parkville campus there are carparks for students and visitors nearby.

Plan your degree

While the Arts Welcome events are all about meeting people and making sure you know about special opportunities, you may still have questions about how to structure your degree. If so, we've provided a series of online video guides regarding course requirements as well as a break down of the course structure, including several example study plans.

Stop 1: Connecting Students and Services

In addition to our online guides, Stop 1 offers a range of services including:

  • Administrative and information services including student ID cards, fees, transcripts, scholarships and graduations.
