Scape Swanston Melbourne
Scape Swanston Melbourne is an inspirational place for students to live and work. They ensure that all the students have everything they possibly need to feel safe, calm and most importantly, at home.
The comfortable Scape Swanston facility also will make students feel engaged, to meet the challenges ahead of living and studying in a new city.
Students join together in a new community that all look out for one another and help each other out, either academically or socially. And this bond stays with the students throughout their stay and continues after they leave.
The student accommodation has been designed as a bright, cheery and environment. An ideal place for work, rest, and play. All rooms are ensuite and complete with showers. There are also numerous fully equipped, modern kitchens available for preparing meals, avoiding the need for unhealthy microwave meals.
The student rooms also have ample desk space, for books and laptops. And there is super fast WiFi internet connectivity in every room.
Students also need their rest, so each individual room has a large comfortable double bed and the room temperature has its own controls. And if students do need assistance during the night, there is always a Scape Swanston representative available 24/7.

Logistics and Requirements
Scape Swanston Melbourne had several logistical problems to overcome regarding the transportation of students from the accommodation to Melbourne University’s Clayton and Caulfield Campuses.
- Transport must run three times daily with return journeys at 7am, 11am, 6pm
- There would be three distinct periods:
- 25th Feb - 31st May - Normal Runs
- 10th June - 28th June - Exam Periods
- 22nd July - 25th October - Normal Runs
- 04th November - 22nd November - Exam Periods
- Transport must be punctual as collection times are highly important
- Occasionally there would also be requirements to provide bespoke transport for trips and tours
- Transport must have the capacity for the number of students
- Transport must be able to upgrade in the future as demand grows
- Vehicle tracking and monitoring
- Monthly reporting of key agreed information
All these points were highly important to Scape Swanston, as picking up the students at the correct time and ensuring they get to their lectures on time was critical. Adverse driving conditions such as rush hour had to be included in the equation so as not to affect scheduling.
