Melbourne Polytechnic’s Prahran campus is alive with activity and reflects its creative surrounds. Located right in the middle of Melbourne’s visual and performing arts scene, you’ll find our Prahran campus just metres off the iconic Chapel Street.
Melbourne Polytechnic Prahran’s mission is to improve access to creative training and arts facilities for our students and the wider public. We offer outstanding arts facilities, a broad range of creative training courses and provide opportunities for students to gain real-world industry experience while on-campus. Our sound production and media students learn about the world of the stage working the David Williamson Theatre, whilst our hospitality, baking and cookery students learn on the job at our fully-functional commercial restaurant, The Apprentice.
Our campus is buzzing yet spacious, with areas dedicated to each creative discipline and ample space for students to chill between classes. We collaborate closely with the City of Stonnington and other key stakeholders to help build a strong Melbourne Polytechnic community in Prahran.
As you enter the library, you can choose to use Macs or PC’s, read a book in armchairs, or head upstairs for our quiet study and break-out rooms.
If you’d like to have lunch on campus, you can head to our campus cafeteria and choose from fresh hot and cold options, or enjoy lunch in our newly-renovated, Apprentice restaurant, which is run by hospitality students.
Walk up to Chapel Street and take advantage of cheap eats, eclectic shops and hidden cultural gems. At night, the entertainment options are endless. You could catch up with friends at one of the many eateries or bars dotted along the street, check out an exhibition, or even head to the cinema.
