5 Reasons Carlton is the Best Student Suburb in Melbourne
Carlton is a lively and multicultural suburb just north of the Melbourne CBD. Here is a snapshot of why Carlton is the perfect area to live as a student in Melbourne:
1. CARLTON IS THE EDUCATION PRECINCT OF MELBOURNE
The University of Melbourne, RMIT University and Trinity College Foundation Studies are all just a short walk away. Living in Carlton means you save time and money on travel to classes, and therefore more freedom to do all the things most important to you. Other education institutions like Monash College, William Angliss Institute and Victoria University are also just a short tram ride away.
2. CARLTON OFFERS THE BEST OF MELBOURNE WITHOUT THE CROWDS AND NOISE
You get the best of both worlds when living in Carlton. With the World’s Most Liveable City in walking distance, you have easy access to Melbourne’s world class restaurants, bars, museums, shopping and entertainment. However, it is much more peaceful in Carlton, with large leafy gardens at your doorstep, a laid back café culture and a quiet night’s sleep you just can’t get living in the city.
3. CARLTON IS INTERNATIONAL AND MULTICULTURAL
1 in 3 Carlton residents are students and this has shaped Carlton into the trendy, multicultural and inclusive suburb it is today. The mix of international languages, cuisines and grocery stores in the area help international students feel right at home while offering the chance to expand your horizons.

4. CARLTON HAS EASY TRANSPORT ACCESS TO THE CBD AND BEYOND
Walk, cycle, or take public transport from Carlton to anywhere you want to go – there is no need for a car or even an uber when you live here! While you could conceivably buy and eat anything you want within Carlton, the area is well connected by countless public transport and bike trails into the city centre and out to some great hang out destinations on the outskirts of Melbourne. Go green with your transport options!
5. CARLTON SPOILS YOU FOR CHOICE
You are spoiled for choice in almost everything. There are student deals at many shops and restaurants, cheap cinema nights at the nearby Cinema Nova and fresh produce at wholesale prices in Queen Victoria Market. What more could you ask for?
