Parkville Station


Parkville Station is a new free, weekly newspaper for students at the University of Melbourne Parkville campus. We are going to publish on Monday, every week of semester, starting with O-Week (which, of course, starts on a Tuesday…).

The newspaper will be chock full of news, reviews, event listings, useful guides, and other content that will brighten your day.

Our distribution team hands out copies all over campus on Monday and Tuesday when there’s a new issue available. You can get a copy from our network of fixed distribution points around campus.
