Parkville is the main campus of the University of Melbourne. The original campus was in the area north of Grattan Street but today the campus extends south towards the city.
We acknowledge that Parkville campus is located on Wurundjeri land.
SEFS staff and students are located in the Western Annexe of the Baldwin Spencer Building (no 113) in the north of the campus, adjacent to Union House. The site is near the main University gym and has easy access to the cultural life of the city of Melbourne with parks, cafes, pubs, restaurants and music venues nearby.
