MCR is a highly secure building. There is a security door at the building entryway that requires a swipe card to enter. When reception is unattended, there is a second locked security door students must enter to access their rooms.
Multi-share apartment and studio apartment doors automatically lock from the outside and can only be accessed with a valid swipe card. Individual rooms in multi-share apartments also automatically lock from the outside, but can easily be configured with your swipe card to be left unlocked, depending on your preference.
Windows are tinted and have a limited extension preventing access to the building.
Australia Street in Camperdown, where MCR is located, is a quiet, leafy street connecting King Street, Newtown with Parramatta Road, Annandale. The street is very well lit and is in a safe part of the city. There is also a police station and a fire station located on Australia Street.
All staff are First Aid trained, and the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital is a five-minute drive from the property. The property coordinator lives on site.
