2019 is almost over which means we’re coming up to holidays and the new decade. Students and staff alike will be taking a break over the holidays to celebrate, have some fun (and most importantly, catch up on sleep).

Australia Day hours

Griffith Library will officially close from 5pm December 24, 2019 and will reopen on Thursday 2 January 2020. Full 2019-2020 summer break hours are available here and remember, you can still access all our digital resources while the Library is closed if you need to catch up or just want to get ahead.


New myGriffith coming in 2020

All your student stuff in one place myGriffith

We have some exciting news: in February 2020, as many of you will be settling into a new year of studies, we will be unveiling your new myGriffith portal — your student portal that many of you have given your time and thoughts to over the last year. We’ve sent out questions and surveys; many of you have participated in discussions — and we’ve heard your call. 

We thank you for your honest feedback. The original myGriffith was launched five years ago, and it’s wild how much the world can change in that time. We wondered what your experience of the myGriffith student portal is, and how we can make it exactly what you need as you go about your busy lives as students and humans in this busy world. 

myGriffith 2020 will allow you to personalise your own portal with more and simpler ways to access and navigate your notices, calendar, timetable and support services. It will have a whole new look and offer a visually intuitive experience with quick access to courses in Learning@Griffith, your weekly schedule and fee information.

We’re thrilled to be sharing this myGriffith evolution with you and we will also continue to want to hear from you so that we can keep up to date with how myGriffith is working for you. Let’s keep up the communication.  

We look forward to seeing you in the portal next year. 


Look after yourself

fitness-332278_1280

Studying at university can be a stressful time in your life. Make sure you look after yourself and take the time to do something other than hit the books. This could be:

  • Chilling out in the library – the designated Safe Place for LGBTIQ+ staff and students.
  • Checking out the back catalogue of Lightning Talks.  They were all recorded and are now available online for you to watch whenever you like. There’s a range of talks on topics such as sustainability, equality, creativity, crime and punishment and much more.
  • Take a break! Get outside and take a walk, chat with friends and remember that while your studies are important, there’s more to life.
