Student Hub

The Student Hub at Murdoch is a flexible adaptive community space where you can socialise, refresh, engage and co-work.

The Student Hub is a community space for eating, socialising and co-working

The Student Hub is open Monday to Friday from early morning until late evening each day.

Inside, the Hub offers air-conditioned seating, WiFi and charging stations, as well as a range of dining options. Outside, you will find shady courtyards and balconies, including the beautiful summer and winter gardens.

Food and drink

A number of cafes and restaurants are already open in the Ref, at the heart of the student hub, with more to come soon. In the meantime, the Pop-up Ref remains open just down the stairs next to Kim Beazley Lecture Theatre, offering a range of street food and drinks.

We're always on the look-out for fantastic food trucks, so if you own one, or know someone who does, we'd love to hear from you.

Rolld has joined Murdoch University with fresh and flavoursome family-made Vietnamese food.

Rolld's recipes have been passed down through generations, with food inspired by Mama Hoang and Mama Ly, Vietnamese mothers who, on top of working 18-hour days to create a better life for their family, found their joy in creating simple, honest, memorable meals. Rolld is always looking to innovate and adapt to the market, while staying true to the essence of Vietnamese food, which is always balanced, vibrant, and unbelievably flavoursome!
