As part of the campus, MRS is supported by the University's security services, with security assistance on hand 24/7 - but we also have dedicated ‘MRS’ services personnel on site each night at Clayton to assist all residents and to ensure safety and security. Here are some of the other ways we keep everyone safe:
- MRS is part of the University Respect Now Always initiative and mobile app.
- Only residents have access to their hall (via proxy card or security key access)
- All rooms have their own lock for added privacy
- All halls and rooms have smoke alarms and fire-safety equipment which are checked regularly
- On-Campus Security personnel can escort you to your residence if you’re returning late at night - and security staff are based in or close to the residences
- We run fire safety inductions and regular drills
- Our Residential Support Teams are made up of senior Monash University staff and student leaders who live in each hall to support each resident. They are trained to understand the special needs of younger students living away from home for the first time.
- Residential Support Team members have first-aid training, mental health first-aid training and all are required to have a Working With Children Check.
A safe environment requires cooperation from everyone in the residential community, which is why our Conditions of Residency includes a number of security initiatives and responsibilities.

Campbell Hall's history
Campbell Hall is named in honour and recognition of Emeritus Professor Enid Mona Campbell AC, OBE.
1932 - 2010
Professor Enid Campbell (1932 - 2010) was an eminent legal scholar and the first female professor and then dean of a law school in Australia. She earned an international reputation for her research and writing on constitutional and administrative law, and her contribution to legal education.
Professor Campbell was born in Launceston, Tasmania, where she attended Methodist Ladies' College and was Dux of the school. At the University of Tasmania she was awarded a Bachelor of Economics, a Bachelor of Laws with first class honours and the university medal in law.
Professor Campbell won a graduate scholarship to Duke University in the United States, where she was awarded a PhD in political science for her examination of the work of the 19th Century legal philosopher John Austin, studying the law from the perspectives of political philosophy, international law and comparative politics.
Returning to Australia in 1959, Professor Campbell began her long career of distinguished university-based legal research. Her first book, 'Parliamentary Privilege in Australia', established her as the leading Australian scholar in the field. Her textbook, 'Legal Research: Materials and Methods', was referred to as the "student bible" on legal research in Australia.
In 1967, Professor Campbell was appointed Sir Isaac Isaacs Professor of Law at Monash University, the first woman to hold a chair of law at an Australian university. In 1971, she was appointed Dean of Monash Law School - the first female dean of a law school in Australia. She retired officially from Monash University in 1997 after 30 years of service, but as an emeritus professor remained active as a researcher and author in her field.
Enid Campbell received many awards recognising her achievements and contributions to the law and the community. In 1971, she was elected a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia. In 1979, she was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE), and in 2005 was appointed a Companion of the Order of Australia (AC) - the highest honour that can be conferred on an Australian citizen.
As a leading scholar in a field traditionally dominated by men, Professor Campbell was an inspiration throughout her career for young women studying law.
