The former Victoria Police Mounted Branch stables have been transformed into world-class teaching and learning facilities for students of the University of Melbourne’s Faculty of Fine Arts and Music following an $18 million make-over.

The University of Melbourne will welcome tens of thousands of visitors to its Parkville and Southbank campuses for Open Day, this Sunday 16 August from 10am to 4pm.

A project worth more than $40 million will redevelop the Dodds Street stables into a visual arts wing at the VCA, creating a new entry point to the University and opening the campus to students, local business and residents.
