Join us for lunch

Nathan Campus:

Wednesday Lunch Club
We meet every Wednesday at 12 midday at Nathan’s Cafe Rossa. All welcome; if you are on Nathan campus, come join us. Look for the table we have reserved inside.

We are lucky enough to have support from GUPSA in the form of $5 discount food vouchers each week for each HDR Candidate who comes to lunch.  Thank you GUPSA!

Lunch Club Candidate Talks
Occasionally, instead of meeting for lunch at Cafe Rossa, we use the same time slot to give a candidate an opportunity to give a talk about their research. Candidates can use the time to practice an upcoming conference talk, or to just talk about their research in a more formal setting.



  • None, which means it’s lunch this week!

If you’d like to give a talk, let your Nathan-based HDR Representative Katherine Dallaston know and we’ll find a week that works for you. As it is run by your fellow HDR candidates, your audience will be your peers. Sometimes, HLSS staff (including our HDR Convening Team) might attend too. At the moment, talks will be at Nathan campus, but if any Gold Coast-based HDRs are interested in either presenting or listening, let your Gold Coast HDR Representative Thom Combe know – Griffith have great video-conferencing rooms.”
