About Murdoch Institute of Technology
A major part of life at MIT and Murdoch University, supporting teaching and learning needs across all fields.
Featuring online and print collections, study spaces and computer access, the Library has everything you’ll need to conduct research and write assignments. Best of all, there is a specialist team of research and study support staff on hand to help.
The Library features a number of computing labs (eLibraries) where you can access online resources for learning and research. The Library catalogue, Library services and the electronic databases are available from these areas. If you’re not sure how to use these databases there is training available and staff on hand to help.
24/7 Learning Common
Do you need to study late into the night sometimes? After the Library closes, you can access the 24/7 Learning Common. The 24/7 Library Learning Common is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so you can work when you want.
Sometimes you want to study with friends or you might have a group assignment you need to work on. At Murdoch University, there are numerous group study areas that can be booked by students. Some of these contain Audio Visual facilities.
Australian Homestay Network
Homestay is a great option if you want a secure, family environment where you can adapt to living in Australia with help.
You will be placed with a local host family that will welcome you into their home. You will live as a family member, have breakfast and dinner provided on weekdays and all meals provided over the weekend. Your evening meal is shared with the family, while breakfast may be prepared by you.
Live on Campus
There is a full range of room types available, including single, ensuite, double and deluxe all within modern one, two, five and eight bedroom apartments. Rooms are available on a first come first served basis. Price varies by apartment size and room type. Twinshare may be available on request.
MUV facilities include:
- Recreation room with pool tables, table tennis and video games, television lounge and music room
- Computer laboratory, photocopy centre, study rooms
- Three large laundries with coin-operated washing machines and dryers
- Volleyball and basket ball courts
Hostel accommodation is a good temporary option when you first arrive in Perth. Student Services can advise where you can book into a local hostel until you decide on more permanent accommodation.
In Australia, age restrictions apply to certain accommodation options. If you are under the age of 18 you are required by law to either have a legal guardian who is a direct family member over the age of 21 with whom you will live with in Perth, or live in a homestay arrangement with a local carer approved by MIT.
