Ridley’s campus has been designed to facilitate community. There are common spaces, including the student lounge, kitchen facilities and meeting rooms.
We have a great campus in Parkville – minutes from the Melbourne CBD and a wonderful learning community. 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.
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.
Food and Fellowship
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, Wednesdays and Thursdays during semester time in the dining room, and dinner is offered for those attending evening classes on Wednesday. Students pay for these meals but the cost is subsidised by Ridley College.
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.
