The Ridley campus in Parkville is just minutes from Melbourne CBD, and is set in tranquil surroundings near parks, playing fields, a public golf course, and the Zoo. It is well served by public transport, both tram and train. The new Parkville Metro station (expected to open 2025) will be on our doorstep.
Our campus is a wonderful community space where we gather and learn together in the Chapel, Library, dining room, student lounge and outdoor spaces.
Our purpose is to help train 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.
Food and Fellowship
Morning tea is provided for students each day of classes and is enjoyed in the dining room or outside. College lunch is held for all students on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during semester, and dinner is offered for those attending evening classes on Wednesdays. Students pay a subsidised cost for these meals.
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 its supporters.
There are a number of study options available to our campus students: full-time or part-time, day or evening classes, weekly classes and intensives. You can also mix modes and take some online subjects as part of your course.
