Melbourne Campus Master Plan

Impression of La Trobe's city of the future.

Our journey started in 2012 with our Melbourne campus vision, with the first Melbourne (Bundoora) campus master plan coming together in 2014. This set a guide for the future of our campus, balancing the needs of our community and serving as a blueprint for growth.

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.

As our population grows, over the next decade, La Trobe University will evolve 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.

Your ideas can 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.

During June to September 2022, we sought feedback from a wide range of stakeholders, including on-campus and local neighbouring communities about how we can make La Trobe University an even better place to live, work, learn and play.

We are currently reviewing the feedback received during our consultation period which will be used to inform a refreshed draft master plan for the Melbourne (Bundoora) campus.
