Griffith University’s Open Day is on this Sunday 11 August with thousands of people expected to attend for a festival-like experience at the Gold Coast, Nathan and South Bank campuses.
Every year our Australian Universities open their campuses to the public to share their wealth of staff, facilities and ideas with aspiring students of all kinds.
It is the perfect opportunity for future students of all ages and stages as well family and friends to see for themselves what are the best attributes of their potential future university and what studying there might be like.
This year Griffith believes more than ever that it has something new to offer as it grows, adapts and strives to meet the challenges of our future generations.
So what’s new?
The New Griffith on the Gold Coast now offers a $150 million Health Centre and a $20 million Learning Commons with its Microsoft Tech Lounge and new study spaces.
2014 will also see the completion of the new Griffith Business School building and two new light rail stops that will deliver students to campus in 2014.
The New Griffith at Nathan offers the new Campus Heart and Arrival Plaza, the amazing off-grid, 6-star green-rated $42 million Sir Samuel Griffith Centre the first of its kind in Australia.
Our South Bank campus showcases everything you need to know about studying at Queensland’s leading music, visual and creative arts hub.
Visitors to the Gold Coast, Nathan and South Bank campuses will see live displays and learn about Griffith’s new degrees in science, environmental design, design futures, occupational therapy and engineering as well as new programs on offer at our Mt Gravatt and Logan campuses.
