On-campus options

Where you'll live is one of the most important decisions you'll make at university and when it comes to choosing a place to live, everyone's a little different.  So we've developed a range of different residential options on-campus.

"I want to praise the excellent communication and hard work that the MRS team has undertaken in order to adapt to the many challenges we have faced this year. MRS has continuously kept us updated on any changes with frequent detailed emails, social media posts and conversations with our Residential Support Teams.

Throughout my time living on campus, I have felt strongly supported as part of a community, and always had someone to turn to if I ever needed a helping hand or listening ear. For example, the Residential Support Team have run weekly online events which I have enjoyed greatly—such as Bingo Night, ‘Among Us’ game sessions and Trivia Night!

My Residential Advisor has also been in frequent contact and has provided answers to lots of my university and student life related questions which has been a great support during this time when there has been so many changes and lots of new information to understand."


Your options by campus


Clayton Campus

Clayton offers you a full campus experience, with all the conveniences you need nearby.

The Clayton campus is home to most of our on-campus accommodation. However if you are studying at another Monash campus you are still welcome to apply for accommodation at Clayton. Check out the Clayton campus travel distances and inter-campus shuttle bus.

At the Clayton campus you'll have easy access to classes and be in close proximity to the campus facilities, libraries and vibrant life of Monash University. View the Clayton accommodation map here.

Peninsula Campus

Situated at the entrance to the Mornington Peninsula, around 30 minutes drive from Clayton.

During semester, regular, free shuttle buses link our Clayton campus with our Caulfield and Peninsula campuses, and our Peninsula campus to Frankston Railway Station. Check out the Peninsula campus travel distances.

All on-campus accommodation options at the Peninsula campus are situated within easy walking distance to the campus centre and sports complexes, and a short commute to the local beaches. View the Peninsula accommodation map here.
