The Bubble is a comfortable, friendly place on campus for students to take time out and connect with other students.

The Bubble programme is available during Trimester 1 and 2 between 11 am–2 pm on weekdays.

At The Bubble:

  • free fruit and hot drinks, heat your lunch in a microwave
  • comfy bean bags and couches to rest and snooze
  • quick craft activities and board games to do between classes
  • meet new people and socialise with friends

Bubble leaders

You'll find regular support from Bubble leaders, who are current students trained in peer support.

Bubble leaders are available if you need help or advice—they can connect you with relevant services around the campuses, or chat about University life over a hot drink and a board game.

Bubble leaders can be found at The Bubble from 11 am until 2 pm on weekdays during Trimesters 1 and  2.
