Social events

Celebrate the start of your university journey with new friends during FedFest! We've got heaps of fun activities planned to make it easy for you to meet other students and get excited about uni life! We know that being at university isn't just about study – kicking back and connecting with mates is important too.

We've planned two big days of social events during Week 1!

Monday 27 February & Wednesday 1 March (8–10 am)

FedFest keeps that carnival atmosphere going through Week 1 of semester! We don't want you to get too serious about study right away, after all! Join us for coffee, art activities, music, competitions, free merch and more!

See our FedFest map below or via Google Maps to find out what's happening.
