What to wear and bring
The tour includes a reasonable amount of walking, which includes going up and down stairs.
Dress casually and wear comfortable shoes as you can be on your feet all day. In the warmer months, it is a good idea to bring a hat and water bottle.
If you have difficulty walking for long periods, or walking up and down stairs, please contact us to discuss how we can meet your needs.
Morning tea and lunch are provided on each tour.

You can also add dietary needs to your profile on the My Staff Page, under About Me.
As a new employee, it opened my eyes to the diverse range of degrees offered, and the facilities that Griffith has to offer students. Reading about something is very different to viewing it first hand. It was a great opportunity to network as well.
It gave me a deeper understanding of the diversity of education that Griffith offers. It was also great to meet and network with staff members from different areas.
Most definitely, I am much better informed now as to the campuses, courses and how they connect. Also better informed for potential research opportunities.
Absolutely helped me feel part of a bigger team and have an increased appreciation and respect for what the other areas on the campus do.
Made me feel even more proud to work for such a great institute. Lots of benefits and opportunities as an employee.
