GSA Speed Friending Session


May 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


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 with a TWIST introduces you to new friends in a playful way.

We’ve snazzed up the humble Speed Friending with a mix of activities to create more fun, laughter and deeper conversations.

Enjoy creating genuine connections with other Melbourne University grad students.

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


The first half of the session will stick to the tried-and-true method of one-on-one chats followed by a snack break to allow for free-flowing conversations.

The second half of the session will consist of group conversations and games to get the juices flowing.

And don’t fret, we provide ice-breaker questions on interesting topics which will make conversation a breeze.


  • 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!


While some snacks and drinks will be provided, we recommend having your lunch before your session.
