Discover Clayton campus' new student apartments
We recruited four of Australia's best architecture firms to design four new residences - that's 1000 new single occupancy studios - on the Clayton campus. Each building features communal spaces, landscaped gardens and comfortable living areas. Each building aims to achieve a five star 'Green Star - As Built' rating. A lot of thought has gone into the designs which are functional and exciting, exceeding best practice and reflecting Australian excellence.
Turner Hall houses 250 residents. The spacious communal areas overlook green spaces. Designed by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects, the building opened in October 2015.
Holman Hall and Campbell Hall
Designed by Hayball and Richard Middleton Architects, these buildings house 250 residents each and both are situated in the heart of the campus. Both buildings opened in January 2016.
Logan Hall was designed by McBride Charles Ryan Architects and features 250 studio rooms. Shops and cafes on the ground floor due to open later this year will create a vibrant, urban feel.

Hear from our students
"The convenience of living at halls is more than the 5 minute walk to class - it's convenience for my lifestyle. MRS made it easy for me to have someone to walk with on the first day, people I could eat with at night and made me meet people who would eventually become like 'family' to me."
James Dean, Normanby House
"Living on res provides a wonderful opportunity to make friends from all different areas of Australia and the world. An environment for socialising as well as study, with a variety of opportunities to gain from older fellow residents. Res really is like a home away from home."
Beth Dortmans, Peninsula Campus
"Being a residential advisor has enabled me the opportunity to contribute to the inclusive community and safe and supportive environment that is MRS."
Ashton Chatfield, Richardson Hall
"The convenience and benefit of on-campus living is the diverse interaction I receive on a daily basis. This is consistently allowing me to grow and expand my confidence with a wide range of people."
Darcie Jongerius, Roberts Hall
