From this October discover SHIFT. It will be the new home of a fresh range of events on campus with something to suit everyone, yes everyone.

Check out and stay around for entertainment, food, faculty support, fitness, well-being and eSport – and that’s just a sample.

SHIFT into a different (fun) gear from 5-7 pm, weekdays at Macquarie Uni.

2-5 October

To kick off our first week of the Shift, we have a great week planned with free drinks from V Energy and goodies from Chobani available. Later, you’ll be able to kick back and enjoy our Hasbro games night or work on your heart health with the MyMarathon laps around campus.

The MQ Buddies have lots of prizes to give away during our Minute to Win It event this week! Keep the laughs going with the Ubar’s Comedy Night, hosted by the MQ Law Society.

29-2 November

Get focused for your exams, and join the MQ Runners as they guide you through the laps on campus for MyMarathon. And if you need to let off some steam, grab the mic on Tuesday to share your thoughts or surprise us with your musical talent, whatever you fancy!

5-9 November

Back by popular demand, there will be dogs on campus to give you some floof-filled encouragement for your final assessments and exams! Drawing workshops with Teong are available if you want to express your creativity or get your boots ready for the all Aussie Bush Dance with the Buddies on Thursday.
