La Trobe University is a public research university in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It was founded in 1964, making it the third university in Victoria and the twelfth in Australia. It is also one of Australia's verdant universities and a member of the Innovative Research Universities group. La Trobe University's main campus is located in the Melbourne metropolitan area's Bundoora suburb area and is Australia's largest metropolitan campus, with 267 hectares of land. La Trobe's other campuses are in the regional Victorian city of Bendigo, the twin border cities of Albury-Wodonga, and two smaller regional campuses in Mildura and Shepparton, as well as a city campus in Melbourne's CBD on Collins Street and Sydney on Elizabeth Street. La Trobe University provides undergraduate and postgraduate programmes through its two colleges, Arts, Social Science and Commerce (ASSC) and Science, Health and Engineering (SHE) (SHE).
La Trobe's Melbourne campus at Bundoora was established in 1967 when the university first opened its doors. Except for education, pharmacy, and dentistry, which are all based in Bendigo, the campus serves as the main base for all La Trobe's main courses. Bundoora is the Southern Hemisphere's largest university campus, spanning 235 hectares and including the adjacent Nangak Tamboree Wildlife Sanctuary. The campus has a student body of 22,000 students and various facilities such as restaurants, bars, shops, banks, and an art gallery. Menzies, Glenn, and Chisholm are the three on-campus residential colleges at La Trobe University. The newer North and South Apartments, the self-contained Barnes Way and Waterdale Apartments, and the University Lodge, which primarily serves postgraduate students, round out the mix.
The Albury-Wodonga Campus of La Trobe University is located on a 26-hectare site three kilometres from the centre of Wodonga. The campus is in Victoria, south of the Murray River. The faculties of education, health sciences, biology, and business are located on this campus, as well as the John Richards Centre for Rural Ageing Research and the Centre for Freshwater Ecosystems.
For more than 20 years, La Trobe University's Mildura Campus has been transforming the lives of our students. We are integral to the local workforce, with 87 per cent of our students staying and working locally. There are more than 1,800 La Trobe alumni living and working in the Mildura region. Led by Head of Campus, Dr Deb Neal, the Mildura Campus staff are dedicated to our students. Many donate a portion of their salaries towards the Mildura Staff Giving scholarships. Our staff are engaged in innovative and varied research, much of which is directly related to the local region. Our campus has a long and proud history in Mildura and La Trobe has many community champions. In 1993, the La Trobe University Regional Advisory Board was established with Brian Grogan as the founding chair. Our Benetook Avenue building is named after Brian, as he led a campaign for the establishment of the standalone site. Our current Regional Advisory Board is chaired by Dr John Cooke (pictured). Dr Cooke was awarded an honorary doctorate by the university in 2015 for his contribution to the field of natural resource management through his leadership and community service. As Victoria's only state-wide university, La Trobe is deeply committed to its regional campuses. The La Trobe University Strategy for Regional Victoria was released in 2020 and details our strategic direction, as a multi-campus university. The Mildura Campus Plan outlines our local strategy and commitment to the region. La Trobe has appointed two community leaders in honorary roles. Dennis Mitchell, Principal of Ranfurly Primary School is an Adjunct Professor and Dean Wickham is an Adjunct Research Fellow. La Trobe Mildura is committed to the local community and are devoted to many partnerships with local industry that benefit our students and the wider community.
La Trobe University's Bendigo campus opened in 1991 on 33 hectares of land and consists of four sites: Edwards Road, Osbourne Street, the Visual Art Centre, and the La Trobe Rural Health School.
Our courses include allied health and nursing, science and engineering, education, arts, business, IT and many more. Our campus is located in Flora Hill, an easy 3km drive or bike ride from the Bendigo CBD. We're located next to Greater Bendigo National Park, which means even though we’re close to all the action of the city, you’ll often see kangaroos on campus! Take our virtual tour and see the extensive facilities on campus. The campus became an integral part of La Trobe in 1991, however the university and its antecedent organisations have been providing tertiary education in Bendigo for nearly 150 years. We have deep community connections and a Regional Advisory Board that enables local community members to provide advice on the strategic direction and local priorities of the campus. As Victoria's only state-wide university, La Trobe is deeply committed to its regional campuses. The La Trobe University Strategy for Regional Victoria was released in 2020 and details our strategic direction, as a multi-campus university. The Bendigo Campus Plan outlines our local strategy and commitment to the region. The campus features purpose-built departments for business, arts, education, outdoor education, health, science and engineering. Our premier lecture theatres, exercise laboratory, technology-packed classrooms and sports field are used by many community organisations, making the campus an integral part of the city. We're proud to host some of Bendigo’s most impressive works of architecture, including our brand new library and engineering building, which both enjoy fantastic views across the city skyline.
