Carlton is quite close to UniMelb and many students live there. It's one of those old, cramped, densely populated inner-suburbs that are full of over-packed terrace-houses. If you have dreadlocks, play accoustic guitar and ride a fixie, you'll fit right in ...
... yeah, I'm exaggerating a little; but not all that much. There are really nice parts of Carlton that property investors have bought and prettied up a lot, but unless you're coming to Melbourne to do your doctorate and are already rolling in the dough, I'd guess you're going to end up in a student share-house.
Providing you're not OCD, or averse to beer, you're going to have the time of your life. Get in fast on that housing though; as you'd expect, the nicer places go first.
