University residence

***Please note that Medley is undergoing some major facade work and whilst the building is enveloped in scaffolding, be rest assured that the accommodation is functioning as per normal****

During the academic year, Medley Hall accommodates university students.  When the academic year ends, rooms become available to external guests looking for affordable accommodation in one of the best areas in Melbourne. Although Medley Hall is not a hotel, linen and towels are provided to guests staying. There is no room service, nor is there shampoo, conditioner or soap provided.  Please note this.

Only a five-minute walk to the heart of the city in one direction and a ten-minute walk to The University of Melbourne in the other, Medley Hall is in the perfect location. It is close to public transport and city airline bus terminals. Just around the corner is the bistro life of Carlton, and around the other are the Exhibition Gardens, the Central Business District, Chinatown, theatres and nightclubs.

Single study bedrooms are available. Most rooms have an extra-long single bed. The rooms are clean but basic. 

The magnificent Victorian Italianate building, “Benvenuta”, is where the dining hall, formal lounge room and music room are situated. 

Conferences, meetings and private functions enquiries are welcome and may be accommodated throughout the year. The college has wheelchair access throughout.

Connecting wifi with PC is quite easy but connecting with mobile phone is really hard. It is not user friendly. That is the only problem I had.
