Monash Residential Services opens first of four new residences
Turner Hall welcomed its first residents, comprising mainly of students from Monash College on October 1, 2015.
Residents who have taken the opportunity to move into Turner Hall are excited about the accommodation and the facilities. The large common spaces, communal kitchens, laundry access and the Residential Support Team have helped build an already strong community. An all-inclusive rate means it is easy for residents to plan their budget each month.
Already, residents in Turner Hall have enjoyed a number of programs aimed at successfully transitioning them into their new homes. These have included some team building activities, communal dinners and other exciting initiatives that have helped build friendships and assisted in residents feeling comfortable at Turner Hall.
Postgraduate and mature-aged students attending Monash University are also able to have rooms in the immediate vicinity of each other. This allows for postgraduate and mature-aged predominant wings, enabling those residents to enjoy communal spaces and events catering to their requirements. The College Head in the Hall will ensure that a student leader is assigned to each area ensuring that a respectful, welcoming space for current residents is achieved.
With the new residences comes increased opportunities for a larger Monash University community. Cafes, restaurants, retail spaces and student study lounges will help improve the already thriving campus life by bringing more students together. An additional 1000 residents living on campus will mean university life after 6 p.m. will continue to expand.
The remaining three buildings will be available for occupancy from January 2016, and applications are now open at monash.edu/live-on-campus
