On campus

Living on campus is a safe and convenient accommodation option. Students who live on campus have access to pastoral care and support.

Contact Monash Residential Services to arrange on-campus accommodation.

Off campus

Living off campus gives you greater independence during your studies.

  • Student accommodation: Our pre-approved student accommodation choices are within walking distance of a Monash campus.
  • Renting and house sharing: If you are over 18 years of age, you may like to share a house with your friends or other students.

Students under 18

If you are under 18, you will need to be looked after by a guardian. This is a condition of your student visa.

We recommend students who are under 18 consider homestay accommodation or pre-approved student accommodation.
