The main entrance at Monash Berwick Campus

It is situated in the City of Casey, one of Australia's fastest growing areas with approximately 2000 students attending the Campus. The campus opened in 1996. It is small in comparison to other campuses, covering an area of only 55 hectares. A student accommodation building was completed in 2006 to stabilise the demand generated by both local and the vast number of international students. Faculties have come and gone over the years and now the Faculty of Education holds the majority of students on campus.

The campus celebrated its 10th anniversary on 29 April 2006.[1]
