Brian Kenyon Student Space

The BKSS is located on the 2nd floor of the Di Riddell Building above Student Central. We are accessible by lift and stairs.  

New to ANU and want some advice? A later-year student looking for a new place to relax? On campus in the middle of a Canberra winter and need to get warm? The Brian Kenyon Student Space (BKSS) might just be your perfect place. The BKSS first opened in 2011, and is named after Brian Kenyon, a loved ANU bus driver who left a strong imprint on the lives of thousands of students who got to know him over the 25 years he worked on and around campus. Today, the BKSS is a focal point for all students on campus – a lounge located in the heart of ANU campus to meet-up, relax and re-charge your batteries (literally and metaphorically). If you want to know more about ANUSA, come and ask the friendly staff behind the Student Space reception desk. We're here to help! Don't forget you can also follow us and message us through our Facebook page. This is also where we post about the latest news and updates such as Student Bites -


The BKSS is on Level 2 of the Di Riddell Student Centre in Kambri. We are accessible by lift and stairs.
