Compass Weekend, Ballarat

Life on Res is going to be amazing and the first weekend is even better. Our 'Compass Weekend' is exclusive to our first year residents! The weekend involves a huge variety of events and activities and most importantly, a chance for you to meet other first year residents and your Residential Advisor (RAs). The weekend gets you off to the best start at FedUni! Don't miss it!

Once you have unpacked and settled in, come along to the Living Learning Centre (LLC), to meet other new residents, get involved in activities, learn about some upcoming events, purchase some merchandise and grab some lunch before the official Compass program starts later on in the afternoon.

What do you need to bring to Compass Weekend?

  • Shoes and clothing to do anything from activities inside and outside, to a semi-formal dinner (beach party theme)
  • A hat, sunscreen and drink bottle

What not to bring?

Compass Weekend and O'Week are Alcohol Free Periods on Res. This means that during this time no alcohol is to be consumed anywhere on Res. O'Week can be a bit much for some so Residence is seen as a place to relax during this time. If you want to drink during O'Week, that's fine, just head off Res to do so. This is a big deal here so please don't get your year off to a bad start.

Expect a phone call from your RA beforehand too. They're here to help with any questions you might have across the year.
