We encourage you to monitor your spam folder.

MRS will process your application and send you an update by email within seven days.

2. Offer of accommodation

  • Additional offers will be made in late January through to February until all available rooms have been filled.

Semester two contracts

  • Offers will commence from mid-May and continue throughout June and July

**A significant number of residents  undergo a change of circumstance throughout the year and as such a number of vacancies become available during the semester.  Offers for accommodation will be made as rooms become available.

3. Offer acceptance
Once an offer has been made, you must accept by the deadline specified in your offer email, or the offer will automatically lapse.

Please pay special attention to all the Terms and Conditions and the Accommodation Fee Regulations prior to accepting your offer;
  • The rental deposit is a non-refundable fee hence, if you are not sure of coming to Monash University and taking up your residency it's important that you contact the Admissions Office and advise them to place your application on the priority wait list until you are certain
  • You must also complete all Mandatory Residential Induction Training requirements.
4. Studio selection (for studio apartments only)

Applicants who have accepted a studio apartment offer will be invited to undertake studio selection from late November onwards.
Studio selection will be offered until the majority of studios are filled or until a time constraint exists between offer acceptance and start of contract, at which time studios will be auto allocated by MRS.

Studio selection is not available for semester two accommodation offers as availability is limited. Studios will be auto allocated by MRS.

*Please note that  studio selection is subject to final approval by the College Head in order to create and maintain a diverse residential community as per the Admissions Policy
Additionally, if you are a current resident and are residing in a studio that is designated by Admissions for residents with specific requirements or conditions e.g Accessibility, you may be required to move if you do not meet those requirements or conditions.

5. Confirmation of booking

Approximately two weeks prior to your contract start date, you will receive an email outlining

  • Your Hall allocation
  • Your arrival details
  • The address details for picking up your keys
  • A link to the welcome video to be watched prior to arrival
6. Moving in

You are expected to move into your room as per the date on your contract. If your arrival date is later than the contract date, you must communicate this to MRS.  Students who do not take up their residency as per the contract start date are liable for rent until a replacement is found.

  • Please allow 10 minutes to check in and collect your keys
  • You will be advised of your assigned room when you check in
  • If you are transferring from another MRS residence you will be informed via email of your transfer period
7. Get involved

By living on campus, you join a diverse and inclusive residential community. One of the best aspects of living on campus is the social engagement, residential activities and events, and your Residential Support Team will be there for you from your very first day.

We encourage you to get involved in everything that on-campus living has to offer throughout orientation and the semester!
