Griffith University launches new facilities

TOURISM Australia Boss John O’Sullivan will officially open the Griffith Business School’s new $38 million Gold Coast facility today.

The seven-storey, state-of-the-art development is set to provide world-leading resources for business education, research and industry collaboration.

Mr O’Sullivan said the new facility will be cutting edge.


“As a GBS Alumni I am proud to be part of a school which has earned its reputation and has not been afraid to challenge the norm,” he said.

“Many universities rely on status and tradition; Griffith University has built this up by being innovative and in places disruptive.”

The GBS building marks the final chapter in the Gold Coast campus’ capital works program, which has included the $150m Griffith Health Centre, $22m Learning Commons and library upgrade.

Enrolments at the Gold Coast campus are expected to increase from 17,000 to 25,000 students over the next decade.
