ANUSA strives to create an inclusive university experience for all of the Undergraduate students at the ANU. In order to increase representation and advocacy for Off-Campus students, ANUSA would be running consultations to determine whether there is a need for an Off-Campus Collective.
Based on ANU’s 2017 Enrollment figure, out of 12,827 Undergraduates, nearly 7,827 students live off-campus. However, there is a significant gap in the level of services and support provided to the off-campus student at the university. Being an Off-Campus Student can be an isolating and tough experience. The Off-Campus Collective can bring about long-term solutions and structural changes that address issues such as lack of representation and welfare.
The collective would be autonomous and would function in the same way as other Departments of ANUSA such as Women’s Department, International Students Department and etc. The Collective would aim to compliment the services provided by the Griffin Hall.
We would love to hear from you if you are an undergraduate student who has lived off-campus at any point during your degree. The survey should take around 1 minute. All responses will be anonymous and voluntary.
The work on the Off-Campus Collective and consultation has been carried out by Harsh Thakkar (ANUSA General Representative). This survey is the beginning of our consultation and will be used to determine if there is an actual need for the off-campus collective. We hope that an Off-Campus Collective will fill the gap within the services provided by ANUSA and the University and would ultimately help students to get the support they deserve.
If you have any questions with regards to this survey, please contact Harsh Thakkar at email@example.com
