Short-term visits

We offer a variety of short-term on-campus accommodation options during the academic year and over the summer university break.

When visiting La Trobe, you can enjoy a short stay on-campus at the La Trobe apartments, which are modern serviced apartments located on our Melbourne campus.

These apartments are perfect for families visiting residential students, or for guests of the University requiring short-term accommodation adjoining La Trobe’s Melbourne campus.

Our studio apartments include a bed, desk and ensuite, and the 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom apartments also include a self-contained kitchen and dining area. Laundry facilities are also available. All apartments are located within walking distance of the centre of campus. You’ll also enjoy easy access to the neighbouring supermarket and restaurants, and are also near public transport with proximity to train, tram and bus routes.

Rooms are serviced weekly, and can be booked at a daily rate for up to three months.
