Arrange your own accommodation with our help
Students are free to arrange their own off-campus accommodation but we do strongly advise against signing lease agreements prior to your arrival in South Africa – you should always physically inspect rental properties before signing lease agreements.
There is a wide variety of quality off-campus accommodation to suit different requirements and budgets available within a 10 kilometre radius of the campus. And the Monash shuttle bus provides transport to and from the campus on a specified route.
We recommend you are familiar with the Rental Housing Act, Consumer Affairs South Africa and Landlord and Tenants Rights before you sign your lease agreement.
Support is never far away
We have ten residential and welfare support advisors (HC’s) who can help with any welfare or emergency needs, as well as provide personal, social and recreational support whenever you need it.
