Application Process

The application process consists of 3 steps – prepare, apply, and outcome. Applications for 2023 open on 2 August 2022.

Step 1: Prepare

In order for your application to be accepted, you will be required to provide the following supporting documentation:

  • A profile photo (headshot for identification) in either JPEG or PNG.
  • All transcripts from any university study you have undertaken, if any [PDF]
  • An academic and character reference [download template] [PDF]

Examples of acceptable referees are: University academic or professional staff member, School Principal, School Deputy / Vice Principal, School Careers Advisor, School Counsellor or School Teacher. References from employers are not ideal.

Your referee can use the above templates linked above or provide a reference on a school or business letterhead. Your referee may prefer to send their reference confidentially to the College which we will happily receive and attach to your application. Referees can email their reference to enquiries.mannix@monash.edu.

Please contact the College if you have any problems providing a reference.

Step 2: Apply

Applications are completed via our Accommodation Portal. The completion of your application will also require payment of the non-refundable application fee of $50. You will receive a confirmation email once you submit your application. If you do not receive an email, please contact the College.

Step 3: Outcome

You will be advised of the outcome of your application within 10 business days of submitting your application. You may receive an unconditional offer or be placed on the waiting list.

Accepting Your Offer

You must accept your conditional offer within 5 business days of receiving your offer email or the offer will lapse. As part of this you must pay an Accommodation Bond of $1000 which reserves your place at Mannix.

After you accept your  offer you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have reserved your place at Mannix. You will also unlock access to The Mannix Insider, an occasional email which will offer you glimpses of the College life that awaits you next year.


Each year the number of applications for a place at Mannix significantly exceeds available places. You are encouraged to apply for a College place as early as possible. Once we have offered all of our available accommodation places, new applicants will automatically be added to the waitlist. Students on the waitlist are encouraged to remain in contact with the College.


If you choose to withdraw your place before offers are sent please let us know so that another student may benefit from being offered your place.

What is the Accommodation Bond?

An Accommodation Bond of $1000 secures and maintains your place at Mannix. For residents, the full Accommodation Bond is refundable at the end of the residency period if all requirements of the Residency Agreement and Conditions of Residency have been met.
