Services for students

Support services

We offer a range of student services to make sure you get the most out of your time at Monash, and we encourage you to take advantage of them.

Child care

Monash has arrangements with childcare centres at the Clayton, Caulfield and Peninsula campuses. Waiting lists may apply due to high demand.

Parenting rooms suitable for changing, feeding and resting are also available at most campuses.

Employment and career development

Got a question about your career? Make an appointment with one of our friendly career education consultants. You can also log in to the Career Gateway for news about available jobs.

Financial assistance

Many people need budgeting support while studying. If you're having financial challenges, or just want to manage your money better, you can talk to a student adviser on your campus. An adviser will provide you with advice, support and options.

Health services

Medical clinics are located at the Caulfield, Clayton and Peninsula campuses. A team of qualified professional health-care providers staff the University Health Service and are available to provide a wide range of health care including travel advice and vaccinations, mental health, referrals, minor surgery, skin checks and pathology.

Dental and counselling services are also available for most students.

Social Justice Unit

Monash is passionate about fairness and social equity, and seeks to improve the human condition by advancing knowledge and fostering creativity. The Social Justice Unit showcases the University's commitment to diversity by:

  • providing support and resources for students with disability
  • managing the Ally Network that promotes Monash as a safe space for students and staff who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer (LGBTIQ)
  • organising events to promote inclusiveness in the Monash community.


Monash University Chaplaincy provides pastoral and spiritual care to all members of the University community, of all faiths and none. Each campus has at least one resident chaplain who is available to both students and staff.

Study skills

All Monash students have access to online resources to improve study habits. Libraries also host events throughout the year to improve research and learning skills.

Technology services

eSolutions is the central Information Communications and Technology group at Monash University. Whether you want information about the portal or you're just having trouble printing, the eSolutions service desk is the first point of contact.

Specialised services

We also have services to cater for the specific needs of student groups.

Indigenous students 

We offer culturally sensitive assistance to Indigenous students and can even help you with your application. The Yulendj Indigenous Engagement Unit, which provides support services to Indigenous students, is located at the Clayton campus and visits other campuses as needed.

International students

Moving to a new country to study can be daunting, especially if you are living away from family for the first time. At Monash we have a range of services that support you before and after you arrive in Australia. These include pre-departure briefings to help you feel comfortable from the moment you get here. We also offer a free pick-up service to take you from Melbourne Airport to your accommodation.

Rural and regional students 

We offer many services to assist students from a rural or regional background. These include special-entry schemes, scholarships and student support.

Students with a disability

Monash promotes access and equity for students who have a disability, ongoing medical or mental health condition.

Study and administration services

Monash also provides help with student forms, ID cards, academic transcripts, student letters and travel concessions. See Monash Connect.
