How to Get Here

The Arts & Cultural Building is located within the University of Melbourne Parkville campus on the corner of Monash Road and Porters Lane.
As you walk down Monash Rd from the Swanston Street entrance (Gate 4), the Arts & Cultural Building is located on the left just after the Student Pavillion.
The Union Theatre and the Guild Theatre are both on Level 2.
The Union House Theatre Office is on Level 3.

Public Transport

Catch any Swanston St tram to Stop 1 – Melbourne University tram stop and walk up to the Monash Rd entrance (Gate 4). Walk down Monash Rd, the Arts & Cultural building will be on your left.

Drop-offs and Accessible Parking

You can drop off audience members and performers via Monash Rd.
Enter via Gate 4 on Swanston St.
There is a roundabout so you can turn around and go back out to Swanston St.

We recommend that you plan to make a drop-off as the closest carpark is the Eastern Precinct (park at the south end near Faraday St). For more details see Parking on Campus.

Car Parking

Unfortunately, being in the middle of campus means that there are no car parks available directly outside Union House.
For details of the public car parks on campus see the Uni’s Parking on Campus webpage

In the evenings there is often free street parking to be found around the Uni but you may need to allow extra time to drive around and find a park (the Lygon St, Carlton area can be quite busy) and be prepared to walk a fair distance from your car to the venue.

Please note that Grattan Street (between Royal Parade and Leicester Street) and Barry Street (between Pelham Street and Grattan Street) are closed to vehicles for up to five years due to the Metro Tunnel Project.
