Student Union Recreational Library (SURLY) is the only recreational library on campus, and a proudly Student Union service. It was founded in 1970 as a music-listening library, and now

houses a range of multimedia, all with relaxation and recreation in mind: books, e-books, DVDs, printing, binding, Music, Multimedia.

See details of Loans Services on the Collections page.


There is an A3 Colour printer/photocopier just adjacent to the library. All on-campus printing services now run through the one standard Monash-wide wireless printing system, run by e-solutions. We recommend making sure you understand the M-Pass Terms & Conditions. If you cannot use your M-Pass for any reason, feel free to come in and we can help facilitate cash payment for printing.

Binding & Laminating

Library staff provide comb-binding service for assignments, theses & other documents. Prices are $2.50 - $4.50, dependent on document size, and include front & back covers.
Laminating costs $1.00 for A4 pages, $2.00 for A3 pages.

We can usually do these on the day, but during busy times (i.e. week 12, swotvac), we definitely recommend coming in a few hours before submission time!

TV, Nintendo Wii U, Music-listening turntables, etc

All of these library facilities are free to use. We try and keep these accessible by only implementing booking systems during very busy periods, so just come on in! (Hint: even if the Nintendo is being played, people are usually very happy to have other students join in their MarioKart tournaments 😉)
