Heritage and natural beauty meet at our tranquil foundation campus
Originally opened in 1975 with a cohort of 451 students, Nathan is Griffith’s most historic learning ground. Almost 50 years later, the campus now hosts more than 13,000 students enrolled in degrees in business and government, engineering and information technology, environment, humanities and languages, law, and science and aviation.
Nathan campus is our home of world-class teaching and research on the environment, corporate sustainability, Asian studies and the emerging biosciences. Here, you’ll find the six-star, green-rated Sir Samuel Griffith Centre—Australia’s first teaching and research building driven by solar power and hydrogen energy—and our recently completed, state-of-the-art Engineering, Technology and Aviation building.
Explore the innovative learning spaces and research centres that make Nathan one of our most popular campuses.
