Finding a place to live

Most houses and apartments in Australia are rented through an agent.

However there are also landlords and housemates who rent a property or a room. Advertisements on all these options can be found on the following websites:

Real estate agents around our campuses:

If you’re looking to share with someone who already has an existing rental agreement, you can try websites like flatmates, flatmatefinders or Monash Marketplace for currently enrolled students.

Many shared options may be Rooming Houses and should meet Minimum Standards so do check if they are in the Consumer Affairs Rooming House Register before you move in. They could be unsuitable or illegal.

Some options include Homestay which is run by Monash College for all Monash students, Homeshare which is run by Wesley Mission and lifeAssist Homeshare .

Another option is the affiliated Mannix College, which is operated by the Catholic church.  This is located opposite the Clayton Campus and provides fully catered accommodation for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
