Nearby Lygon Street (about two blocks east of campus) has a huge number of restaurants and cafes suitable for dinner options. Swanston Street (the east boundary of the campus) has the tram line that connects the university to the downtown area (which is otherwise a 20 min walk). Staying in Carlton, you can still easily get downtown if you want to visit the National Gallery of Victoria, Federation Square, etc.
