Experience our University City

Enjoy new lifestyle experiences for the north

Our city will be safe and alive, day and night. Residents, workers and visitors can enjoy our natural environment, outdoor recreation and our history, art and culture.

In our city, early risers can enjoy freshly made coffee in the dawn light, and night owls can stay working on a project in the around-the-clock offices.

At the heart of the city, our bio-diverse waterway - Nangak Tamboree - will connect Darebin Creek, the Wildlife Sanctuary, the agricultural reserve and beyond. These spaces will be preserved, providing a natural oasis for education, inspiration, and a place of discovery for the wider community. Read a book, meet with friends and co-workers, or simply enjoy a moment of calm in this leafy thoroughfare.

Expanding on our existing sports facilities such as our fully equipped gymnasium, rock climbing wall and 25m pool is our new Sports Park, designed to encourage a healthy lifestyle and connections with others. Whether it’s an important Friday night match watched from the stands, an after work friendly game of netball, or a personal training session, the park offers the facilities and state-of-the-art technology to make it happen.

Art and culture will also play a central role in the city, enriching lives and building a healthier, happier and more culturally aware society.

Thank you for you feedback! Your ideas will help transform La Trobe into a true City of the Future

Our University City of the Future journey is taking its next step with a refresh of the campus master plan, which will set out how the campus might grow and develop in the future.

From June to September 2022, we reached out to our local community, staff and students, to find out what they like about our campus, the different spaces and facilities they use, and how we can improve the campus to benefit the wider community.

You can read a summary of this feedback, which is helping us develop an updated master plan that will set out how the campus can grow to achieve our vision.

We are on our way to becoming a University City of the Future.
