Facilities and technical support

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we have had to temporarily close our on-campus workshops. It is our priority to re-open them as soon as possible and will update this page when that happens.

In their place, we have developed a range of technical support services that do not require you to be on campus but will continue to assist you to develop your art, design and architecture technical capabilities to professional levels.

Digital workshops and facilities

For Semester 1, 2020, we have launched a digital fabrication bureau service for Art, Design and Architecture students, enabling you to submit design files which the Monash University technical team will produce. After production, you will be able to collect pieces from the Digital fabrication workshop or have them posted to your home. For more information, see the Digital fabrication workshop link below.

Other workshops and facilities

For Semester 1, 2020, we also provide a bureau service for our other facilities, including the wood and metal workshops, paper and image-based studios, photography and hot workshops. Organise this directly with the technicians – select the appropriate workshop link below, complete the consultation form, and they will let you know what is possible.

Tech support

Throughout Semester 1, 2020 our technical team are available to help you weekdays from 9am – 5pm AEST. You can request a Zoom video demonstration, phone or email consultation. No matter what stage your project is at, we can help… just let us know what you need. Select the appropriate workshop link below and complete the consultation form.

Borrowing AV equipment

If you require equipment for a specific unit, your lecturer will have already organised this for you. Please contact them with any questions.

Key to the Level of Risk:

Low: General access no induction needed.
Medium: Induction and training required, followed by access during normal hours of operation with general staff supervision.
High: Induction and training required, followed by restricted access with constant staff supervision.
Very High: No student access. Technical staff only.

The risk banding for each workshop or studio is indicated under their headings above. Multiple risk bandings may apply in one workshop or studio depending on the equipment or processes being used in that area. For further information on specific inductions/ training for each area please follow the links to the relevant workshop or studio.
