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 near our Melbourne campus.

These apartments are perfect for families visiting residential students, or for guests of the University requiring short-term accommodation.

All our studio apartments have ensuite facilities and are furnished with a bed, desk, microwave and a tea and coffee station. Fully furnished one and two-bedroom apartments are also available, which include a self-contained kitchen, dining area, and living room. Common laundry facilities are also available.

All apartments are located within walking distance (7-8 minutes) of the centre of campus.

You’ll also enjoy easy access to the neighbouring shopping centre, Polaris, which has various grocery stores, cafes, and restaurants located within a 2-minute walk. You are also a walking distance away from the tram station (route 86) as well as major bus stops.
