Social Engagement & Activities
One of the best aspects of living on campus is the social engagement, residential activities and events.
You're supported from the very first day!
Our Orientation Program is packed with loads of fun activities to help you settle into your new community and make new friends!
The MRS Orientation Programs allows you to:
- Engage with the community
- Make new friends
- Meet the Residential Support Team
- Settle into your new home
- Join in the many fun activities and events
ResStart is an online resource for when you are starting out at Monash University.
Developed by our past residents, ResStart helps to answer questions about accommodation and living on campus.
It is part of our comprehensive Orientation and Transition program and provides useful tips, stories from residents, and interesting videos, so have a good look around.
Each hall delivers a program of events. These programs are unique to each hall, however there are some which are common. There are also MRS wide events to encourage residents from all halls to connect.
Depending on the current level of restrictions, residential support programs including orientation and social events may look a little different, as we continue to adapt our operations in response to COVID-19. Certain events or programs may be delivered in innovative ways, and we encourage you to make the most of the opportunities available to engage with your community.
Check out some of the residential programs run in 2020.

"As a person who thrives off meeting new people face to face and getting to know them that way, I was conscious that government and health restrictions might impact this aspect of living on-campus. Fortunately, the programs and activities run by MRS, the Res Support Team, and the Hall Society have made the year significantly easier.
When there are no health related restrictions in place many of the activities are also built around the community coming together to share a meal and some of the different residential programs and activities include:
Whether it's football, netball, table tennis or even quidditch - there's always a chance to get active and make new friends in weekly hall-to-hall competitions
An opportunity to gather with your community and share a meal together
From MRS Around the World Night, Chinese New Year or Ramadan celebrations there is plenty of opportunity to embrace new cultural experiences on campus!
A chance to catch up and wind down after the uni week
See the latest movie releases with your community at a private screening
Games nights, trivia nights, inter-hall competitions and activities are just the start of fun filled schedule put on by your resident advisors!
Study groups within each residence support the academic achievements of our residents
Community and volunteering activities such as gardening and charity events. There's always a way to give back to the community!
