Services for students
We offer a range of student services to make sure you get the most out of your time at Monash, and we encourage you to take advantage of them.
Monash has arrangements with childcare centres at the Clayton, Caulfield and Peninsula campuses. Waiting lists may apply due to high demand.
Parenting rooms suitable for changing, feeding and resting are also available at most campuses.
Career Connect helps you prepare for the world of work with a range of career guidance services, including job application and interview skills, career coaching, leadership development programs and volunteering experiences. We’ll help you to deepen your employability skills and hone your competitive edge in the graduate employment market.
Many people need budgeting support while studying. If you're having financial challenges, or just want to manage your money better, you can talk to a student adviser on your campus. An adviser will provide you with advice, support and options.
Medical clinics are located at the Caulfield, Clayton and Peninsula campuses. A team of qualified professional health-care providers staff the University Health Service and are available to provide a wide range of health care including travel advice and vaccinations, mental health, referrals, minor surgery, skin checks and pathology.
Dental and counselling services are also available for most students.
Monash is passionate about fairness and social equity, and seeks to improve the human condition by advancing knowledge and fostering creativity. Diversity & Inclusion showcases the University's commitment to diversity by:
- managing the Ally Network that promotes Monash as a safe space for students and staff who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer (LGBTIQ)
- organising events to promote inclusiveness in the Monash community.
Monash University Chaplaincy provides pastoral and spiritual care to all members of the University community, of all faiths and none. Each campus has at least one resident chaplain who is available to both students and staff.
All Monash students have access to online resources to improve study habits. Libraries also host events throughout the year to improve research and learning skills.
eSolutions is the central Information Communications and Technology group at Monash University. Whether you want information about the my.monash portal or you're just having trouble printing, the eSolutions service desk is the first point of contact.
We also have services to cater for the specific needs of student groups.
We offer culturally sensitive assistance to Indigenous students and can even help you with your application. The Yulendj Indigenous Engagement Unit, which provides support services to Indigenous students, is located at the Clayton campus and visits other campuses as needed.
Moving to a new country to study can be daunting, especially if you are living away from family for the first time. At Monash we have a range of services that support you before and after you arrive in Australia. These include pre-departure briefings to help you feel comfortable from the moment you get here. We also offer a free pick-up service to take you from Melbourne Airport to your accommodation.
We offer many services to assist students from a rural or regional background. These include special-entry schemes, scholarships and student support.
Monash promotes access and equity for students who have a disability, ongoing medical or mental health condition.
