The location offers great access to all Monash campuses: Pharmacology students can catch the tram to the Monash Parkville campus, and it is an easy walk to Monash International Business School (on Collins Street) and Monash College City Campus (on Bourke Street). Monash’s Caulfield and Clayton campuses are also accessible by trains from Flagstaff Station, which is just around the corner from Iglu Melbourne City.


Built for students

We care about supporting our residents and helping them develop and grow as individuals while living in a positive and welcoming environment. Our Iglu team, supported by our Resident Leaders (RLs), is always there for you. RLs are students employed by Iglu who understand what you are going through. They run our events to help you make friends, are available to talk to you about any personal issues you may be experiencing and are trained in senior first aid and emergency management. We want you to make the most of your student days. That’s why your lifestyle, safety and wellbeing are at the centre of everything we do.

Living at Iglu was the best time of my life! The facilities were amazing, with friendly staff and a vibrant community.

Location by design

We believe location is everything when it comes to student accommodation. We know it’s a top priority for Monash University students. We also know that great student accommodation needs to go hand-in-hand with a great student lifestyle. Our well-situated properties offer excellent access to amenities and public transport along with some other unique benefits:

  • A broader social network: living with students from other universities and colleges, as well as from all over the world is a great way to make friends outside of your everyday university social circle.
  • Experience more of the city: living in other areas of Melbourne presents opportunities to explore parts of the city you might not otherwise happen upon. Many of the events run by our properties are designed specifically for this purpose.
  • Changing the scene: many students like to separate their living and study environments. Leaving campus each day to return to a world operating with a slightly different lens is refreshing, invigorating and keeps life interesting.
