Down in the basement…

thebasementHave you been to The Basement yet? It’s pretty awesome! No, it’s not a new hipster nightclub in the Valley, it’s the new social space for Griffith students located on Level 0 of Mt Gravatt Library.

Launched this week, The Basement provides dedicated group study pods, additional group seating and more power points. There are also comfy lounge areas to catch up with friends or just get in some well-deserved chill-out time.

Constructed last year, The Basement was designed by Information Services (INS) in close collaboration with the Student Representative Council (SRC). The space was co-designed and named by Mt Gravatt students. Thanks guys!

Information Services (Pro Vice Chancellor), Linda O’Brien cut the ribbon to officially launch the new library space this week. The PVC, in conjunction with the Secretary of the SRC, Mt Gravatt, Rou Hakimpour, thanked INS, Campus Life and the SRC team for their efforts in creating The Basement. Campus Life, Facilities Manager, Allan Perrott also praised the collaborative effort in creating the space.

So check out The Basement at M13, Mt Gravatt Library, Level 0.
