Resident Information Release Statement

MRS is aware that for many students, living in University accommodation may be the first time the student has lived outside of their family home. This, no doubt, can be a wonderful experience for any young adult and a very exciting time. Whilst many new freedoms are open to them they must also assume new responsibilities which they may have previously never had to deal with. MRS is also aware that many parents and relatives may be concerned and anxious about the welfare and whereabouts of their family members.

In the event that concerned family members contact MRS requesting information about a resident, the University is bound by Privacy Laws and is therefore constrained in what information it may be able to disclose to them. MRS will endeavour to assist relatives of residents as much as it can subject to the University's privacy obligations referred to above.

Monash University values the privacy of every individual’s personal information and is committed to the protection of that information from unauthorised use and disclosure except where permitted by law.
