The DI Riddell Student Centre is now fully operational.

ANUSA, PARSA, Woroni, and various student services moved into the Di Riddell Student Centre. A sewage issue caused a slight hitch in the opening week, but the Centre is now fully operational, with the BKSS to open tomorrow.


ANUSA opened nominations for Probity Officers and the Disputes Panel. Nominations close 26 April and the positions will be filled at next week’s Student Representative Council meeting.

ANU Sport

Nominations opened for six positions on the Board of ANU Sport. If more than six people nominate before 2 May, elections will be held 7 to 9 May.
