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.

Logan Hall's history
Logan Hall is named in honour and recognition of Emeritus Professor Malcolm Ian Logan AC.
Professor Mal Logan, geographer and university administrator, was Vice-Chancellor and President of Monash University from 1987 - 1996, a time of momentous expansion and change in the young University's history.
Professor Logan was born and raised in country New South Wales. After completing his secondary schooling in Tamworth, he enrolled at the University of Sydney and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with honours, majoring in geography.
After spending time as a teacher in secondary schools, he returned to the University of Sydney to complete his PhD, and later take up an appointment there as Professor of Geography and Urban Planning. Subsequently, he accepted visiting professorships at universities in the United States and Nigeria.
In 1971, Professor Logan was appointed as Professor of Geography at Monash University. Although he knew little about Monash at the time, he was keen to return to Australia, and the University seemed to be "the liveliest and brightest place" to choose.
Once at Monash, Professor Logan settled in quickly to his department and faculty. After a few years he was recruited to senior University management, first as Pro Vice-Chancellor and then, in 1987, he was appointed as Monash's fourth Vice-Chancellor.
Influential at the Commonwealth tertiary education policy level, and in command at Monash, Professor Logan was instrumental in negotiating and giving effect to the higher education merger policies of the late 1980s. Monash merged with key Victorian institutions to grow from one campus at Clayton and 20,000 students, to six Victorian campuses and 40,000 students.
Believing Australia's future and Monash's potential for growth lay in Asia, Professor Logan established a University presence in key countries in the region, and achieved substantial growth in international student enrolments.
He established the University's link with the Sunway Group, which led to the creation of the Monash Malaysia campus in 1998. The marked increase in the proportion of international students changed the face of Monash University, and supported the growth and development of leading research facilities and resources.
In 1996, Professor Logan was appointed a Companion of the Order of Australia (AC), the highest honour that can be awarded to an Australian citizen. He retired as Vice-Chancellor and President of Monash University at the end of that year.
