Watch Our People Our Stories which documents on video some of the many stories from students and staff about studying at NMIT. Based across the northern region of Melbourne, NMIT has six metropolitan campuses, Preston, Collingwood, Epping, Fairfield, Greensborough and Heidelberg, and a rural campus at Ararat. Each campus provides an individual, unique and enriching student experience. There are also six training centres, Northern Lodge – Eden Park, Northern Lodge - Yan Yean, Yarra Glen Racing Centre, Northern AMEP (Adult Migrant English Program) Centre in Broadmeadows, Growling Frog Vineyard and NMIT Kyneton Park. Yarra House offers boutique student accommodation in the beautiful surrounds of the Fairfield campus. In 2010 NMIT opened its Technical Education Centre at Heidelberg – a purpose-built facility for young people wanting to complete their secondary schooling with a practical focus. Also, in 2010, we opened the Green Skills Centre of Excellence at our Epping Campus, followed in 2012 by a new student centre.
