Welcome all new students
Welcome to University and the Library.
Check our website for updates on events as they may be subject to change due to COVID restrictions.
We hope you come and join us during Week 1 for a Library tour. If you are an early bird, come have Breakfast in the Library, talk to staff to learn more about our services. Later register for a Fast Friends session to meet other new students and enjoy a free lunch.
Library Orientation Webinar
The ‘Navigating Library Systems’ webinar is pre-recorded and available online this semester. This webinar highlights three key areas useful for commencing students, when it comes to getting the most from the Library. First, finding resources. Second, subject resource guides/databases. Third, how to access help at the library.

Breakfast in the Library
Helping students start their day (and semester) well with a free breakfast. Students can chat to Library staff/SPSAs, and grab ‘to go’ breakfast items such as fruit, nuts or Up&Go.
Fast Friends, our speed meet and greet activity, is an opportunity for our students to make new friends from different degrees and backgrounds. The sessions involve playing games and ‘getting to know you’ activities, followed by a free pizza lunch.
