Pedestrian access

If you live nearby, why not walk to campus?

Swinburne encourages students and staff to explore the well-connected pedestrian networks, footpaths, parks and gardens around our campuses.

If you live further away and use public transport, get off a few stops early and walk the rest of the way.

A 20-minute walk is a significant contribution towards your daily dose of exercise. You can use the opportunity to discover new parks and local shops.
