International House is the perfect setting for a short stay in Melbourne. Set in a delightful garden environment, they offer a variety of single student bedrooms with in house catering, just a 10 minute walk away from the University of Melbourne. Lygon Street in Carlton, a bustling quarter of restaurants, cafes, bookshops and a handy off-campus social centre for students, is also a 10 minute walk away. A short distance to the north is the Barkly Square shopping complex.
The residence is located approximately two kilometres to the north of the Melbourne City Centre and is situated on Royal Parade, a beautiful nineteenth century tree-lined boulevard. There is a tram stop very close by and it is a fifteen minute ride to the CBD and within walking distance to Royal Melbourne Hospital, Melbourne Zoo and Royal Park Golf Course.
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.
