La Trobe has been one of Australia's pioneering universities for almost 50 years. Discover our unique history, including our motto and coat of arms.
In 1967, 552 students enrolled at La Trobe University, the third university to open in Victoria, which has grown to accommodate more than 36,000 students, with over 7,000 international students from 110 countries.
We now have a network of campuses, with over 26,000 students at our Melbourne Campus and over 7,500 at our campuses in Albury-Wodonga, Bendigo, Mildura, Melbourne City (Collins Street and Franklin Street), Shepparton and Sydney.
