University City of the Future

Our vision for investment, jobs and infrastructure growth in Melbourne's North.

University City of the Future

La Trobe University's Melbourne campus at Bundoora is a special place that already provides a unique setting for learning, research and employment. With its substantial landholdings and location at the gateway to Melbourne's growing north, La Trobe provides unparalleled opportunities for the University and the wider community.

Over the next decade, La Trobe University is evolving into a world-class University City of the Future at our 235 hectare Melbourne campus in Bundoora. The new infrastructure will turn our campus 'inside out' and welcome the local community onto the campus as a place to live, learn, work, socialise and stay healthy.

The University City of the Future will create:

  • 20,000+ new jobs over ten years
  • Education facilities for 40,000+ students
  • Additional housing for 12,000 students, staff and private residents
  • $3.5 billion in Gross Regional Product (GRP) over the next ten years.

It will transform our campus into exciting new precincts:

  • A major Health and Wellbeing Hub will improve access to health services and include a private hospital, aged care facilities and additional childcare
  • A world-class Sports Park for teaching, research, community participation and elite sport
  • A transformed Research and Innovation Precinct focussing on our world-class strengths in:
    • Agribioscience and Food and Fibre
    • Health and Wellbeing
    • Digital Technology and Cyber
  • Better transport links to further boost economic activity on campus and in Melbourne's north
  • A new town centre for Melbourne's north with extra commercial, retail and cultural space and hundreds of millions of dollars in private investment opportunities
  • Environmental corridor and green spaces for students and the community
