About Res

Hello, my name is Trisha Prpich and€“ in 2012 I returned to MRS as Director after a 6 year break working elsewhere at Monash (after 17 years at MRS before that!). As Director, my responsibility is to ensure that all residents have the best possible experience whilst living on-campus at Monash. The REStart program is designed to help residents settle into their new home here at Monash with some practical advice as well as vignettes from members of our communities talking about their own personal experiences in Res. The most important asset you have for settling into University life is your Residential Support Team and your Residential Advisor (RA) in particular. MRS prides itself on the quality of our pastoral care and residential support and this comes primarily though our volunteer RAs. They, along with your Residential Support Team are the best place for you to seek assistance and support in your new home.   Please accept my sincere welcome to MRS, I hope that your experiences here match (and indeed exceed) your expectations.

Monash Residential Services, or MRS as it is also known, was established in order to provide on campus accommodation to Monash University’s Australian Campuses. MRS also provides off campus housing services to all Monash students. This includes information regarding off campus housing options, listings of web based Off-campus housing property search engines and assistance with tenancy issues and disputes.

The Monash Residential Services Mission Goals.

  • within each location on campus, which provides care, support and enrichment for the residential community in academic, cultural, environmental, personal, social and recreational matters;
