GSA O-Week Event: Speed Friending


August 2 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Gryphon Gallery, 1888 Building, Grattan St, Parkville Campus



Make new connections with friends who will be with you throughout your time at the University of Melbourne.

Speed friending introduces you to new friends in a playful way.

Our Speed Friending sessions consist of facilitated group interactions and games to create more fun, laughter and deeper conversations.

Enjoy creating genuine connections with other University of Melbourne grad students.

Whether you’re confidently social, or a bit shy and reserved, you’ll quickly warm up and make new friends.

And don’t fret, we provide ice-breaker questions on interesting topics which will make conversation a breeze. You’ll see how easy it is sharing stories, thoughts, ideas, and feelings as we play a variety of fun games in the Gryphon Gallery.


  • Meet students from your university
  • Expand your social network
  • Improve your social confidence
  • Have fun!



Bring a sense of adventure, curiosity and be ready to make new friends and connections!
