Peninsula Campus

Gillies Hall
Gillies Hall, named after Monash alumnus and prominent Australian political satirist, actor and director Dr Max Gillies AM, provides residents with a range of high-quality, sustainable living spaces.

The building is the most energy efficient building Monash has ever delivered, setting a new benchmark in sustainable development as the largest commercial Passive House building in Australia. Students moved into the 150-bed accommodation facility in February 2018.

Gillies Hall has been recognised for a number of awards within the architecture and building industries. View the Gillies Hall awards list below, or view the full list of accolades awarded to the University’s built projects here.
