Mannix gives residents the space, support and community they need to excel in their studies, and grow as people.
Overview & Inclusions
Included in our fees is a diverse academic program, mentoring support and academic skill development, as well as 20 meals per week, weekly housekeeping, utilities and internet, the provision of programs and events and so much more. Included in the fee is a refundable $500 bond.
New contract structure
We understand it can be challenging for residents to have to move-out during the mid-year break, so from 2020 we are increasing the length of our contract to include these additional 4 weeks.
Freshers will now be offered a 39-week contract and Returners a 38-week contract.
We will still ask residents move-out within 24 hours of their final exam or assessment in November, so the College remains a place conducive to quiet study.
