House is located approximately two kilometres to the
north of the Melbourne CDB and is situated on Royal Parade, a
beautiful nineteenth century tree-lined boulevard.
Melbourne is the capital city of the Garden State of Victoria
and is an interesting mix of elegant buildings from the 1880s,
startling examples of modern architecture, quirky laneways and a
vibrant and cosmopolitan cultural life.
The House is effectively bordered on two sides by Princess Park
and Royal Park, both of which boast a network of walking and
These spaces provide a welcome variation to the demands of
academic life (or indeed pleasant and leafy outdoor settings in
which to study).
International House is a fifteen minute tram ride from the
Melbourne CBD and a ten minute walk to Lygon Street in Carlton, a
bustling quarter of restaurants, cafes, bookshops and a handy
off-campus social centre for students. A short distance to our
north is the Barkly Square shopping complex.
International House can be reached by catching the northbound
number 19 tram along Elizabeth St towards North Coburg and getting
off at Stop 15.
