Venue

The LMT2022 conference will be held at RMIT University’s City Campus, in the Swanston Academic Building, Kaleide Theatre, Building 8, 360 Swanston Street, Melbourne.

The Swanston Academic Building (SAB) is one of the newest additions to the university and has already become an iconic landmark.

Originally established in 1887 as the Working Men’s College, RMIT was founded with the aim to provide educational opportunities to the working class of Melbourne. Even now, RMIT stays true to its roots by striving to create innovative teaching, learning and research programs that enable students to receive the knowledge, information and skills they require to meet and solve modern challenges.

One of the most significant aspects of RMIT is its global focus. RMIT has teaching partnerships throughout Asia and Europe, and research partnerships across every continent.

RMIT’s City Campus

Almost anyone who has visited Melbourne will easily be able to recognise RMIT for its eye-catchingly colourful buildings. Located along Swanston Street, RMIT’s location couldn’t be more convenient or central; it is in the heart of the CBD and is just a short walk up the street from the State Library of Victoria. Additionally, just across the road from the State Library is Melbourne Central which, though is a shopping precinct in and of itself, also connects to Emporium and Bourke Street Mall.

The City Campus features several award-winning buildings, including the Design Hub and the Swanston Academic Building – both of which are home to the tireless work and world-class research that RMIT is renowned for.

Getting to RMIT

Getting to RMIT is incredibly simple thanks to its central location. It is accessible by both train and tram but is also walking distance from many hotels and other iconic landmarks. However, it is not recommended that you drive to the building as its centrality means that traffic is almost always an issue and there is no on-site parking.

A good rule of thumb is to just jump on a City Loop train, get off at Melbourne Central and head up Swanston Street towards the colourful green building.
