Our residential colleges are situated within Toohey Forest on our Mt Gravatt and Nathan campuses. Surrounded by natural bushland and walking tracks, the colleges provide an idyllic place to live, study and make the most of your time at Griffith. The on-campus colleges have easy access to public transport and are just 12km from Brisbane CBD. One of the city’s biggest shopping precincts, Westfield Garden City, is just 6km away. Living on campus so close to class also means you can cut your university commute and maximise your free time.
Living on campus in one of our residential colleges offers the best of both worlds. Through our Residential Life Program, you’ll enjoy an action-packed calendar of social, sporting and cultural opportunities, as well as ongoing academic support with networking events and set study nights. You’ll also get to meet and hang out with a variety of new people, with our college population comprising students from more than 70 countries. There’s also no curfew at college; you can come and go as you please.
While living on campus, you’ll have a wide range of options for meals - from preparing your own in a self-catered college, to the many cafes, restaurants both on and off campus.Find out more
