For bookings of 12 or more, please get in touch with the Urban Central team. We’re here to help you organise safe and clean school group accommodation in Melbourne.

We have a variety of room types available, so please view our accommodation here.


Local School Groups

Local school groups journeying into the city for a special exhibit or event can add an overnight stay and make the trip a memorable one!

Schools in country Victoria see an enormous benefit to providing a night’s accommodation before or after the specific event in order to maximise the time spent in Melbourne CBD and reduce the travel hours wasted in a single day.


Interstate School Groups

School trips and camps are always an exciting part of a student’s journey!

While children are busy preparing their midnight snacks, you can quickly and easily organise safe and clean student accommodation for interstate school groups. Located just moments from the CBD, Urban Central is easily accessible via public transport, on foot, or through your own organised transportation.


International School Groups

Playing host to international travellers means international school groups, too, can feel comforted, welcome, and safe at Urban Central!

Whether your school group has ventured overseas for a sporting trip, competition, or any kind of learning experience, you can find fun, culture, and new friends in Melbourne.
