In the lead-up to and during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018), our facilities will be utilised by the Australian and visiting GC2018 teams, along with officials, delegates and organisers.
The Griffith Aquatic Centre is due for completion in early 2017. This purpose built, world-class facility includes a 50m swimming pool and associated fitness area, helping to create a sports hub on the Gold Coast campus. Swimmers and other GC2018 athletes from across the Commonwealth will have access to the facility for training purposes.
Also located on the Gold Coast campus is a national standard athletics track which includes; a synthetic running surface, full throwing cage (hammer, discuss), pole vaulting and a water jump facilities. Our athletics track will also be available to athletes for training and warm-up purposes for competing athletes at GC2018.
The Griffith University Red Zone is a technologically advanced interactive venue on our Gold Coast and Nathan campuses, that offers a unique and creative space for meetings, collaboration and study. The Gold Coast campus' Red Zone will play an important role in our GC2018 partnership - it will be the location for our Commonwealth Games exhibit, which will be open to the public from late 2016.
You can find information on the Parklands Project, which is the site for the GC2018 Commonwealth Games Village, at our Red Zone.
