The first years orientation to life on Res is going to be amazing!

Compass is a program specifically designed to set you up for a terrific year on residence, and a fantastic start to your future here at FedUni.

  • "At first I was really nervous with getting to know other students but these games got our unit out of our comfort zones allowing us to make friends."
  • "Was fun and got to meet heaps of new people"
  • "Best weekend ever"
  • "My favourite thing about the weekend was the amount of personal growth I saw in myself and others through the games and experiences we had and the amount of new friendships I made in just one weekend."

New residents rated Compass Weekend an 8.5 out of 10 and their comfort in living away from home improved by 26%. Living away from home jumped from 59% before compass, to 85% comfortable after compass weekend. We've been doing this a while now and it's no surprise that residents rate the weekend so highly, it really is your best start to Uni life.

Formal dinners, presentations, fun games and activities and most importantly you will have the chance to meet all the other first year residents and your Residential Advisor (RA).

If you are at all nervous about Res or Uni (or even if you're not), this will sort that out and get you off to the best start possible!
