You are invited!

To celebrate the start of semester 2, GUPSA invites you to our welcome back to semester party at the Unibar at Nathan (N71).

Time: 5:30pm – 9:30pm
Date: Thursday 1 August 2013

We have a band, The Basement Shuffle, who come from the Conservatorium and play a mix of contemporary, hip hop, funk and a bit of jazz so it will be a great night.

It’s free entry and there’ll be free food and some free drinks too, so, if you’re coming, please RSVP to to help us with catering

On behalf of GUPSA, I want to extend a big welcome back to all coursework students returning to Griffith University this semester and I also extend a warm welcome to all postgraduates, HDR and coursework, who are newly starting at Griffith right now. We are confident your time here will be a richly rewarding one.

GUPSA has a lot planned for the coming months by way of activities and services for postgraduate students across all the campuses we cover.

Last semester, GUPSA provided a free legal aid service for postgraduates, in collaboration with the SRC. The service resumes on Thursday 1 August and will run throughout the semester. It’s a free walk-in service from 2pm until 4pm, N28 Room 0.06 (Meeting Room 2). The service provides free legal advice on a range of issues including: tenancy, workplace issues/entitlements, minor fines, minor criminal activity, de facto family issues. Please note that it does not deal with visa issues.

The GUPSA office is located in the student clubs and associations space on Nathan Campus. The building number is N28, GUPSA office is 0.07. Please drop down and see us if you are on campus. Our phone number is 3735 4822.
