This new precinct, located on the corner of Grattan and Swanston Streets, at the new heart of the Parkville Campus, provides a place for students to engage, connect and play. It delivers new and refurbished buildings, extensive landscaped spaces, arts and cultural theatres and event venues, 3500 study seats, and a substantial food and beverage (F&B) offering.

This industry-leading retail precinct brings together services, events, activities, and
new retail opportunities that create a vibrant centre of activity on the Parkville

It is the new place to engage creatively through the arts, to unwind, to study,
connect and innovate in spaces designed to enhance the student experience. Laneways and spaces for dining and social interaction are positioned along high-traffic pedestrian routes, offering a mix of fast casual dining, quick service restaurants, ‘grab & go’, and cafés, while the retail offering is centred on convenience and daily essentials.

Activated in a staged approach, the new retail precinct currently boasts a multitude
of market leading hospitality brands and operators, including St Ali, AU79, Zambrero, PappaRich, Moonfishh, Thailander, Rice Workshop, Gong Cha and many more, creating a vibrant food and hospitality destination for the University cohort.

Modern University precincts are not complete without the inclusion of an attractive social space for casual dining and responsible drinking, and the vision for the Student Bar & Eatery will round out this curated F&B mix.

Located on the first floor of the newly renovated building 168, in close proximity
to the Student Union and study spaces, and with easy patron access via Swanston
Street, this outlet is destined to become a central feature and will deliver a distinctive F&B offer, set alongside the present F&B mix.

The University’s ambition for the first-floor space is to partner with a forward-thinking hospitality operator who can devise a bespoke concept to establish a unique point of difference for the precinct, encourage a safe and social environment for students and provide an affordable ‘student offering’ of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and delicious food.

We aim for this business to become a focal point of and an iconic part of campus
experience and are open to hearing from reputable operators as to their vision for a
concept to activate this space.
