A place to call home, away from home

“Home isn’t where you’re from, it’s where you find light when all grows dark.”

– Pierce Brown

Who we are

We’re a university based, non-profit student association – providing comfort and support to Malaysian students in Melbourne.


Our People Comes First

Each of us bears the hopes of bringing students together so that they will be able to become friends in Australia. Leaving home to study in a foreign country is never an easy experience and being in the company of friends is indeed a prime factor that helps everyone in the process.
