Welcome to O Week!
Griffith University library is full of resources to help you settle into uni life and succeed in your academic journey. We suggest you check out our website, take a look at our Study Smart tutorials, come along to a library tour and scope out a comfy study spot.
We’ll also be hosting tables at each Market Day, so catch us at one of the below events. Ask us all your burning questions, and get the low down on our Library Shelfie Competition (it could score you a sweet $300 prepaid Visa card).

Finally: don’t forget to download our official Griffith App to help you get orientated on campus. FYI–the maps function will be a lifesaver during your first few weeks.
For more information, visit the library orientation webpage.
Get ready to have some fun, bouncing back and celebrating the beginning of Trimester 2.
Be sure to attend the Griffith University Bounce Back Markets next week – it’s your chance to have some fun, grab some freebies, and find out all there is to know about being a Griffith Student.
There will be an abundance of stalls, along with live music, free snacks (popcorn and fairy floss? yes please), giant games, spray tattoos, clubs, and much more.
And, most importantly, the Griffith Library Stall.
Come and chat to us (we don’t bite, we promise) to find out how the library can help you with your studies. We’ll give you the low down on the musts: connecting to WiFi, downloading MS Office for free; and the extras: finding a study space, following our awesome social media.
Plus, we’ll tell you how you could win $300! Yep, the Library Shelfie competition is back, and all you need is Instagram, a photo inside one of our libraries, and the ability to hashtag, to go into the draw to win $300.
Oh, there will also be live music, activities, and roving entertainment. But we know the real reason you’ll be coming along is to visit us at the Library Stall, right?

|Monday 10 July 2017||South Bank (QCA)||10:00am – 2:00pm|

Before your first trimester begins, it helps to take a look around, get set up and make some new friends before launching straight into your studies.
And that’s what this week is all about! Packed with plenty of fun events and informative workshops, O-Week is the perfect opportunity to meet staff and fellow students and explore your campus. Use the online planner to see all the O-Week events.
Be sure to attend the O-Week Market Day on your campus. It is the absolute best day on campus as the centre of the University is converted into a giant street market complete with live performances, roving entertainment, product sampling, and countless stalls.
No matter what classes you are enrolled in – there will be something for everyone. Visit all the different stalls to find out stacks of information on clubs you can join, services on offer and pick up a bunch of freebies to take home.
You’ll find the Griffith Library team at each O-Week Market Day, ready and willing to share everything they know about Library and IT at Griffith. We can help you set up your Wi-Fi, navigate the Griffith Uni App or access workshops to get you uni-ready.
Plus, the Library stall usually has a few bonuses, like free USBs, lollies and even fun competitions with major prizes. Enter our Mini Golf competition to go into the draw to win the ultimate Uni Survival Pack.
See you at O-Week Market Day!
Get into the swing of O’Week and have a shot at our Mini Golf competition. It’s a ‘hole lot of fun!
If your golf skills are above par and you sink the ball into the hole, you could go into the draw to win the ultimate Uni Survival Pack.
Who can possibly survive uni without a giant jar of Nutella and many, many packets of Mi Goreng noodles? Nobody, that’s who.
That’s why we’ve included these two vital food groups in the Survival Pack, with other uni necessities like a bucket hat, laptop case, sports bag, water bottle, bookshop voucher and much more.
Come and visit us (the lovely library team) at our Market Day stall and play some putt putt.
We are visiting each campus over the next two weeks, and Gold Coast you’re up first! We are heading your way on Monday with our tees, balls and putters.
To play, you’ll just need to like the Griffith Library Facebook page. Show us that you like us on your device, then grab a club and take your best three shots.
If you get a hole in one, two or three, you will go into the draw to win the Uni Survival Pack. That’s right, you’ve got three chances to get the ball in the hole.
There will be no mulligans allowed (it’s a golf term; look it up!). And if your ball goes off the green, you will be disqualified.
The winner of the Uni Survival Pack will be announced on Monday 6 March 2017.
It was lovely to meet all of you who came to visit our Market Day Stalls last week.
We had a blast hanging with Big Red, having a sticky-beak at the other stalls; and most of all, welcoming all you brand-spanking-new students to university.
Some of you popped in for a chat, some came for the free goodies, and others swung by to find out how they could win the Ultimate Winter Survival Pack.
And entering our Winter Survival competition was super easy; as you no doubt found out. All you had to do was LIKE our Facebook page, LIKE our competition post, and SHARE it with your Facebook friends.
A bunch of you entered and went into the draw to win awesome winter goodies – like a seriously massive jar of Nutella, the cutest Emoji slippers in the world, an inflatable lounge, the Game of Thrones series and more!
So who won? Well, we threw all your names into a trusty barrel (it wasn’t the manky old rubbish bin, we promise!) and randomly drew out a winner.
Congratulations Lauren! You are the lucky winner of the Ultimate Winter Survival Pack. We are totes jelly of your new Emoji slippers! If they don’t fit your feet, you know who to gift them to, right?
