New Residents

We are thrilled to have you join us at Mannix College! As you embark on this exciting journey, rest assured, we are here every step of the way to ensure a smooth transition into your university life. This page is your go-to resource for all the essentials you need to know before you arrive.

Step 1 –  Residency Agreement

As you gear up for an amazing time with us, signing your Residency Agreement is an important milestone to complete. We will email your personalised version to you, but for now, here is a sample Residency Agreement, which will give you an understanding of what it contains.

This document is your guide to understanding how things work at Mannix and what we expect from each other. It’s more than just a formality; it’s our way of ensuring everyone enjoys a safe, supportive, and fun living environment.

ACTION: Please read and sign the Residency Agreement by our deadline. It’s important to do this to confirm your place in our community.

If you’re joining us and you’re under 18, there’s an extra step. We want to ensure you and your parents/guardians are on the same page about life at Mannix. That’s why we have a special Under 18 Residency Agreement, which must also be signed and submitted.

Step 5 – Arrival Day (Sunday, 18 February 2024)

Mark your calendars: Your Mannix adventure begins on Sunday, 18 February 2024!

We’re buzzing with excitement as we count down the days to welcome you to Mannix College. It’s important that all our new residents join us on this special day. This is when your Mannix experience officially kicks off, with a warm welcome from the staff and student leaders and lots of essential first-day activities planned for you.

ACTION: We will email you a link to book your arrival time which you must do by our deadline. You will be able to bring up to three family or friends with you on the day.

A Special Note for Our Exchange Students
Are you an international, exchange student joining us at Mannix? You have the unique opportunity to move into the College earlier, on Friday, 9 February 2024, so that you can attend essential Monash University orientation events. This also gives you a bit of extra time to settle in before the official Arrival Day.

ACTION for Exchange Students: If you wish to take advantage of this early move-in, please get permission from the College beforehand. It’s a great way to get acclimated at your own pace!

  • Build Lasting Friendships: Engage in activities specially designed to help you meet and bond with fellow residents – your future friends and supporters!
  • Ease Into University Life: Transition smoothly into your academic journey with helpful insights and tips.

We will email you the Welcome Week schedule in advance of your arrival, but you can expect it to include:
