Camp Street

Welcome to the Camp Street Campus! With so many different spaces for you to learn in, including state-of-the-art facilities and a variety of student-centred study spaces, Camp Street is a great place to continue your educational journey and launch your arts career. The benefit of being in the centre of Ballarat means you have access to all the incredible CBD shops and services, whether it’s a local café or jumping on an e-scooter to explore the city. Getting to Camp Street couldn’t be easier - it’s located only a block from the train station, and there’s a bus stop right out the front of campus.


Starting uni can be pretty daunting, but don’t worry, Orientation is designed to help get you set. Attending Orientation will help you learn more about Federation, familiarise yourself with your program, and meet your peers and teaching staff. While Camp Street students are welcome to attend other campus events, there are also many exciting activities running exclusively in Camp Street. You can find out more at the Camp Street events page.

Room numbers for orientation sessions (and classes) can be a little long and confusing at first. You'll find you learn them quickly, but you can use the following rules to help you out:

  • Most rooms at Camp Street Campus are made up of a letter and three numbers, such as room S101.
  • The letter refers to the building it is in. So in our example of S101, the room will be in Building S.
  • The first number is the floor. For our example of S101, it will be on Floor 1.
  • The last two numbers are the room number itself, and tell you exactly which room you are looking for.
