Vedikaa Padia, Master of Communications and Media Studies
As an international student in Melbourne, I had little knowledge of my rights as a tenant as well as the responsibilities my landlord or agent needed to fulfil.
The MRS Off-Campus Accommodation team made me aware about my rights and guided me at every step, in order to resolve the situation in a timely manner.

Mapitso Raswoko, PhD Candidate Law Faculty
I contacted MRS' Off-campus Accommodation Services to find accommodation when I first arrived to commence my studies. They helped me find appropriate accommodation within my budget and very close to campus.
I recommend that any Monash student needing assistance should not hesitate to contact the staff for their accommodating and inclusive service!

Krisha Thakor, Bachelor of Biomedical Science
I spent a lot of time trying to figure things out myself, and soon realised that there were too many legalities involved that I found difficult to manoeuvre myself around.
The advice and support that MRS provided made me feel confident in taking steps to make serious decisions that would empower me financially and as an off-campus tenant.

Julia Persson, Monash Abroad student, Arts Program
I contacted Monash Residential Services to receive assistance in how to best proceed with breaking the lease for the off-campus apartment that me and my fellow roommates had to leave early as a result of the outbreak of COVID-19.
After successfully breaking the lease, we reconnected with MRS after experiencing difficulties receiving the refund of our rental bond.
