in 2022

How to Apply

Moving away from home and starting Uni is a huge step. You’re leaving behind everything that’s familiar and comfortable, to begin a whole new adventure.

Mannix is a place where you’ll be supported to live your best life, excel in your degree, and make friends who become family.

We offer two application pathways – Early Entry and Standard Entry.

The option you choose depends on your current studies and your plans for the future. Check out the criteria below to help you decide.

The Early Entry Program gives you certainty that if and when you study at Monash your new home is waiting for you.

Early Entry is perfect for you, if you:

have nominated (or plan to nominate) a course at Monash University as your first preference

Early Entry acceptance is contingent upon you receiving an offer to study at Monash University’s Clayton, Caulfield or Peninsula campuses, in either the December round (20 December 2021) or January round (14 January 2022) and enrolling on a full-time basis for 2022.

Early Entry applications have closed, but you can still apply for Standard Entry

Standard Entry is best for non-recent school leavers, or if you’re still considering which course and Uni is right for you.

Who can apply?

Mannix is perfect for you, if you are:

  • studying or intending to study an undergraduate degree at Monash University, on a full-time basis at either the Clayton, Caulfield or Peninsula campuses
  • willing to get involved and contribute to our awesome community
How do I apply?

Applications are completed in our Accommodation Portal

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, either at the College or via Zoom.

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? 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

Are there any other personal achievements or accomplishments you’d like to tell us about? 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. 

If you’re applying for Early Entry, we’ll also ask you to answer the following two questions:

  • Our ethos drives everything we do at Mannix, as does our strong sense of community. Describe a time you’ve been community-minded in your actions. We’d love to know more about any community service projects you’ve been involved in, where you’ve demonstrated your willingness to do something for the community without expecting anything in return. 
  • Mannix is committed to helping you achieve your academic goals. What has helped you succeed academically so far? We’d love to know any specific study strategies you use, and how you avoid distractions.
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 289 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?
