Over the years, Griffith University has become my second home. I spent 3 years studying at the Nathan campus, which included many late nights in the library and hot chocolates at Cafe Rossa. Since graduating and becoming an alumni, I’ve been lucky enough to land myself a job with Griffith International (Griffith can’t get rid of me that easily!)
Since the campuses have been closed due to COVID-19, it’s been a pretty strange feeling not to be able to walk through the beautiful Toohey Forest on my lunch break or explore the campus. Thankfully, campuses will soon be reopening, but it got me thinking, how can students experience all of our facilities, when they are not able to visit the campus in person? And so, a few of my innovative colleagues have created the Griffith virtual reality experience, showcasing Griffith campuses, its staff and students.
Hundreds of images have been shared from across our Gold Coast, Nathan and South Bank campuses, showcasing the creative, technology, clinical, and student spaces, as well as facilities and buildings. You can visit some of the spaces that Griffith has to offer; from the clinical to the creative, look around in 360° and experience Griffith from wherever you are in the world, without stepping foot on campus.
The webpage includes short VR experiences, which is a great way to really immerse yourself in what it would be like to be on campus. You can gain an insight into what it would be like becoming a Griffith Mate, or watch videos of our academic staff in the Big Data Lab and find out more about the different schools at Griffith.
Despite having spent over five years on campus at Griffith University, I virtually visited many of the facilities on offer for the first time. So if you’ve been missing campus life like I have, or would like to discover the extensive range of facilities then check it out by clicking here.
