Who is eligible to apply?

Mannix is perfect for you, if you are:

  1. Studying or applying to study an undergraduate degree at Monash University, full-time at the Clayton, Caulfield or Peninsula campus;
  2. Willing to get involved with and contribute to the community (ie; you want to live somewhere that’s more than 4 walls and a bed)
How do I apply?

Applications are completed in our Accommodation Portal

You won’t be able to edit your application in the Portal after you’ve submitted it. To make any changes to your application, please contact us (enquiries.mannix@monash.edu) prior to the closing date. 

Please note: to ensure we’re able to communicate with you after you leave high school, please register with an email address other than your school address. As all communication with you is via email, your email address should be one you check regularly.

What does the application involve?

The application consists of two parts – a written component, and an interview with the Principal (conducted via Zoom in 2020). 

We’ll also ask you to pay a $50 non-refundable application fee, upload a photo of yourself, and book a date and time for your interview, all within the Portal. 

So you can prepare, here are the questions we will ask you in the written component.

Question 1

Mannix aspires to be more than just a place to stay; our mission is to inspire in our residents a desire and capacity to make a difference in the world. 

What has influenced your decision to apply to live at Mannix?

Hint: We’d love to know what excites you about the prospect of living here, how you think you can contribute to the community, and how living at Mannix can benefit you. 

Question 2

Tell us about personal achievements or accomplishments you’re particularly proud of:

Hint: We’d love to hear about any leadership roles you may have undertaken, times when you’ve succeeded at achieving a specific goal, or where you’ve felt particularly proud of something you’ve achieved. 

We ask you to be concise with your answers, and limit them to 500 characters each. You will be able to elaborate at the interview stage. 

How can I prepare for the interview?

Make sure you’re familiar with the College Ethos, as the Principal will be interested in your thoughts on this at the interview. The Principal may also ask you to elaborate on your written answers. 

Interview will be scheduled for 30 minutes, but will realistically only take 15 minutes. We allow the extra time to answer any questions you may have.

How does Mannix access my application?

We’re looking for applicants who we feel will thrive in a residential community, who are willing to contribute positively to the College culture while maintaining a commitment to our ethos, and to academic excellence. 

The date you submit your application doesn’t have any bearing on the outcome (but don’t wait too long to apply)

How will I know if I’m successful?

We’ll send you an email.

How many place are available each year?

We have 288 residents live here, and there are approximately 160 places available for Freshers each year.

I’m a parent; how can I find out about my child’s application?
