MONSU Caulfield is the student representative association for Monash Caulfield students. They provide all sorts of student services, run awesome events and offer volunteering opportunities.
Experience Melbourne with MONSU

This five week program includes visits to some of the most popular tourist attractions around Melbourne, including Puffing Billy, Healesville Sanctuary and Queen Victoria Market. You’ll even get to attend an Australian Rules Football game and try to understand why Melburnians love the sport so much! MONSU is taking expressions of interest now.

Join a non-residential college!
Are you worried about missing out on social and academic advantages because you don’t live on-campus? Monash’s non-residential colleges (NRCs) aim to provide these benefits to students living off-campus. Gain access to social engagement and support, mentoring from senior students and a range of social, sporting, academic and cultural programs by applying to become a part of one of Caulfield’s three NRCs. Activities for semester 2 include Dodgeball and many more!
Globe Café provides friendship, support and fun for international students. Get involved with games, BBQs, karaoke nights, trips away, multicultural nights, film nights, dances and more, and get to know other international students and Australian families. This free program is presented by the St John’s Anglican Parish, a short walk away from Caulfield campus. The semester 2 program commences Friday 3rd August.
