Hi, Our names are Hannah and Mat, and we will be taking you on the journey through Res Start.

We have both loved living at MRS – as residents, Resident Advisors (RAs) and now as Residential Support Assistants.  The most important resource you have in your transition into ‘Res Life’ is your Residential Support Team – but Res Start is a great resource to help answer some (or most!) of your questions as they relate to your transition from home – wherever that may be around Australia and the World – and into your new home here at Monash!

We want this resource to help start your new life here at Monash University, and of course, to successfully living on campus with Monash Residential Services (or MRS as we affectionately call it!).
This resource was developed to help you achieve your best, and to help you with all those questions that you have but may not have known who to ask.  There are useful tips, stories from residents and interesting videos, so have a good look around!

The Res Start website is part of our Orientation and Transition program – which will include some of the activities we run during Orientation (including Res Start ‘sessions’).

We hope that you get to know more about MRS, and the role that Residential Support Teams (RST) (College Head, Deputy College Head, Residential Support Assistants and Resident Advisors) play in supporting you to thrive whilst living on campus.  We also want to tell you about our office staff who are always willing to help or point you in the right direction.

We love living in Res at Monash, and we know you will too!
