Included in the form are details about how to apply for on-campus accommodation.

Please note, if applicants do not meet the English language requirements, they may be eligible for a ‘conditional offer’ based on completion of a 10 or 15 week Monash English Bridging Program (MEB),(see page 3).
Under Australian Government visa rules,all exchange students (except those from Belgium, Sweden and Norway) must have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)before they can apply for a student visa.
This health insurance policy provides a safety net for international students,similar to that provided to Australian residents through the Medicare system.It is provided by a private insurance company and arranged by Monash.It covers basic medical, hospital and pharmaceutical costs while students are in Australia and enrolled at Monash.
The Monash Abroad office will email students instructions on how to apply online for on-campus accommodation once they have successfully submitted their exchange or study abroad application; students should not apply directly to Monash Residential Services (MRS).
Students who choose to live off-campus can receive assistance/advice on searching for rental properties, setting up a share house, things to look out for before they sign a contract, an idea of comparable rental costs, how to budget, and how to get the essentials like internet, gas and electricity connected.
3. ESTIMATED LIVING EXPENSES
Information about living costs in Melbourne for international students can be found here. This information is primarily for international students completing full three-year degrees at Monash so there may be some variations for exchange and study abroad students. You can also get an idea of living costs in Melbourne here.
Students will need to complete and return the acceptance declaration in their International Student Course Agreement and receipt of payments where applicable. Monash Abroad will then email an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) form. The eCoE is required to apply for a student visa (subclass 500). It is important, and the students responsibility, to fully understand their obligations and responsibilities when applying for a student visa. Students are advised to not book non-refundable travel until their visa has been issued.
