Parents' room

At Swinburne, we’re always seeking ways to improve our services and facilities for our students and staff who need to bring their children to campus.

We currently have parents' rooms at our Hawthorn and Wantirna campuses. The Croydon parents' room has been closed temporarily due to building works. 

  • Hawthorn campus, EN611c (Level 6, Engineering Building)
  • Hawthorn campus, SPW126
  • Wantirna campus, WG109

All Students and staff have access to these rooms and do not need to request access to be updated on their ID cards.

Facilities in the parents' rooms include:

  • a water fountain 
  • a fridge 
  • a change table 
  • a microwave 
  • a bottle warmer 
  • a paper towel dispenser.
