Ridley’s campus has been designed to facilitate community. There are common spaces, including the student lounge with space to relax, a kitchen and meeting room.
We have a great campus in Parkville, but also a wonderful learning community. Our purpose is to help train many men and women to serve Jesus Christ among God’s people, and throughout God’s world. That’s what life here at Ridley is all about.
Our campus is located only 3km from the CBC of Melbourne, a major international city with all its services. Ridley is set in tranquil surroundings near parks, playing fields, Royal Park Golf Course, and the Royal Melbourne Zoo. Public transport (both tram and train) is readily accessible.
Morning tea is provided for students each day of classes and is enjoyed in the dining room or outside in the sunshine. College lunch is held for all students on Tuesdays and Thursdays during semester time in the dining room, and dinner is offered for those attending evening classes on Wednesday.
The Leon Morris Library is an excellent facility that plays a vital role in the academic and community life of Ridley. Its quality reflects many years of sustained investment by the college and supporters in this vital resource.
There are a number of study options available to students who choose to study on campus. Full time or part time, day or evening, intensive or semester classes and mixed mode with both on campus and online subjects.
