Social events

Celebrate the start of your university journey with new friends during Orientation and 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 weeks of social events, beginning during Orientation and continuing into Week 1!

Monday 20 February & Wednesday 22 February

During Orientation, your campus will be divided into different zones – food trucks, entertainment, games, student services, market stalls and more! You'll be able to connect with your peer mentor, try different activities, grab a bite to eat, meet other students and have fun! We want you to get a feel for the Gippsland Campus vibe and see what Federation has to offer.

Check out the Orientation map below or via Google Maps.

Thursday 2 March (10 am–2 pm)

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 live music, art activities, sport, competitions, free merch and heaps more!

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