Shared Facilities

Burton and Garran Hall has several shared facilities for all residents. All shared facilities are cleaned regularly. It is expected that residents will keep it a safe space.

Located centrally, B&G has a lounge and gamesroom. The perfect place to socialise, the lounge is open at all times to residents. It is the location of frequent social events or impromptu study groups. From 7-10 pm, the canteen/bar, Spiderbites, serves cheap snacks and drinks.

Study Spaces
B&G has a number of study spaces for residents to use. These include

  • Two computer labs
  • Library
  • Function Room
  • Tutorial Rooms

    Each floor has 2 unisex bathrooms. Each contains fully enclosed showers and toilet cubicles. They are cleaned daily. We do ask that all residents respect these facilities, the cleaning staff and their neighbours by ensuring basic hygiene and cleanliness is considered at all times.

    Computer Rooms
    There are two computer labs at B&G. All computers are connected to the internet and a black and white printer, to make studying at home more convenient. Please use the same username and password as you would use on any ANU computer or website.

    B&G’s kitchen is often referred to as the ‘heart’ of this self-catered hall. Each resident is assigned both a lockable fridge and cupboard space where you can store your belonging for the duration of your stay. Locks are not included but can be purchased from the office or any hardware store.

    With dining tables and chairs spread all down the centre of the kitchen and a breakfast bar area located just outside of the kitchen, residents are encourage to utilise these facilities as much as possible. A number of our residents join cooking groups or hold ‘pot luck’ dinners on a regular basis.

    There are two computer labs at B&G both located in central block; one upstairs and one downstairs. These computers are university owned and operated so these can be used with your ANU printing credit and log in the same as computers in the campus libraries.

    B&G has a large laundry facility that is entirely free for all residents. Washing machines and dryers are available, as well as a clothesline. The laundry is only accessible by residents for extra security. Each floor also has an iron and ironing board.
