The new tower will feature a mix of studio, two-bedroom rooms, and accessible units with a substantial uplift in amenities to benefit all residents which includes a new swimming pool, cinema, and a range of contemporary communal spaces.

The university is committed to offering its students a first-class experience and will continue to work with its existing on-campus partner, Campus Living Villages and other off-campus student accommodation providers to ensure accommodation meets the needs of Griffith students.
