More about Scape Melbourne

Gone are the days when student living meant drab dormitories or ramshackle house-shares with multiple flatmates. Scape Melbourne is the future, educating students on the good life with a 42-storey high rise apartment building in the center of the city’s greatest educational precinct. Towering over universities and everything that is hip and happening, the ultra-modern design features communal living spaces and study areas to maintain the social aspect of university life while offering private, comfortable and self-contained living quarters. In between textbooks, students can look out over the exceptional views of the city they are learning in. While public transport is conveniently outside the front door, Scape Melbourne is so perfectly situated that students of RMIT’s art and design school can enjoy the architectural achievements of the structure from, whilst the nation’s number one ranked University of Melbourne is just a quick hop, skip and a jump from the front door. Scape is situated amongst Melbourne’s hippest bars, cafes, and restaurants. Whether it’s after-hours caffeine needed to continue cramming for exams or a drink and live music to relax and let loose, Scape takes out the hassle of getting to and fro. This is a building that proves that student living can be stylish, comfortable and efficient.
