Campus locations
Chisholm campuses are located in the city of Melbourne and around Melbourne's south-east, a major economic centre in Melbourne. It is one of Melbourne's largest retail and commercial centres, and a great place to find part-time work and live in a vibrant multicultural community. You'll enjoy living, studying and working in a recognised growth area.

Chisholm provides state-of-the-art training facilities in all locations, including our new CBD training facility. Our Melbourne metropolitan locations provide modern, well-equipped facilities and wi-fi connectivity in locations that are easy to get to by public transport.
Practical training is delivered in 'live' restaurants, hairdressing salons, workshops and studios. Access to these facilities gives Chisholm students the opportunity to take theory learnt in the classroom and apply it in a simulated workplace environment to develop valuable skills that employers are seeking.
