As a member of a Monash University non-residential college, you will become part of an on-campus community of 250 members. When you join the college you will be assigned to a cluster, with around 12 other members as well as a college advisor.
College advisors are senior students who have volunteered to help run the program. Many of them were members themselves in their first year at Monash, and they enjoyed being part of the colleges so much that they decided to stay on as advisors.
The colleges aim to provide uni students with the social and academic advantages of living on campus. They do this by organising fun events throughout the semester, just like Monash clubs and societies do. Past events have included:
- Trivia night
- Board games night
- Movie + pizza night
- Card games and karaoke
- Sit down dinners
- Inter-college sporting competitions
- The Constellation Ball
- Pancake breakfast
In addition to this, your college advisors will also organise catch-ups for your cluster throughout the semester.
Other member benefits include common room access, and leadership and mentoring from senior students and college support teams.
Joining one of the non-residential colleges is a great way to get involved and make friends at the university of Monash, so we hope you’ll join us!
It’s FREE to join, and almost all of the events are free to attend!
Membership to Auriga, Phoenix, and Pegasus is open to all current students at Caulfield campus. Students at Clayton and Peninsula are eligible to other join non-residential colleges based at their campus.
