For all public transport options click here.

By Car : Traffic around the University is currently restricted due to the closure of Grattan Street for construction of the new train station.  If you are driving, Melbourne University’s car park can be entered from 244 Bouverie St or entrance at 206 Berkeley St (just off Grattan Street). This car park is occasionally closed to the public from 9:30am, so ensure
you get in early. A flat rate of $20 per day will be charged upon exit. Exiting the car park from the lifts, you will
need to walk across the University Square Park to the conference centre. For further car parks check the university website.

There are also a number of metered car parks on Royal Parade and Grattan Street.
