The ANU has the slightly bizarre news that non-resident students will now be even more firmly branded as losers with the creation of “Griffin Hall”.
Griffin Hall will offer academic support and social engagement for all non-residential students at ANU. It will also provide access to a range of social, cultural and sporting events that are usually associated with established residential halls and colleges.
As far as possible, the Hall aims to replicate the advantages of residential life. Students are assigned to virtual ‘floors’ and Community Assistants are appointed to look after the welfare of the students on each ‘floor’. Members of the Hall can also join sporting teams, allowing them to participate in inter-hall events and competitions alongside residential students. Up to 350 students are expected to become members of Griffin Hall in 2011.
