Living in Melbourne is a big part of your student experience. There are a number of accommodation options from living on-campus, to living with an Australian family (homestay), to living in a student apartment in the city. If you’re not sure which is right for you, remember, we’re always here to help.
Your accommodation options
Staying in Homestay gives you the opportunity to take part in a cultural exchange. This will allow you to practice your English everyday and explore Melbourne all from the comfort of an Australian home.
We have Monash-approved accommodation providers within walking distance of our city campus. These are modern apartments, which offer you a bit more independence but still provide a safe environment for students under 18.
If you want to be part of an exciting, multicultural community, you can live on-campus at Clayton. Managed by Monash Residential Services, you’ll enjoy modern student accommodation near your classes. You can also get involved in a range of student activities.
If you are over 18 years old, you can rent your own place, or share with friends. There are many rental properties in Melbourne. Choose a place that’s close to your campus and make sure you visit the property before you sign a lease.
