Campus orientation

Each trimester we host campus orientation sessions for new students. The sessions cover:

  • staff introductions, roles and student support services
  • unit facilities such as printing access codes, swipe cards, room bookings
  • a campus tour
  • safety and after-hours access
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Tutorial Assistance Program (ATSITAP) and scholarships.

You'll also participate in a trimester planning workshop to ensure you're familiar with your courses, learning objectives and assessment dates. After the workshop, you're invited to a lunch where you can meet current students and have any other questions answered.





Annual dates of cultural significance

Each year we acknowledge and engage in a number of events important to Indigenous Australian history, people and culture. We also organise Griffith's annual Walk and Talk events, which draw together staff and students in a spirit of reconciliation. You can find out more at the First Peoples site.
