The Bubble

What are you going to do this year to make it the best yet? Perhaps one thing is being more courageous about stepping out and connecting with new people.  

The Bubble is a space at Victoria which is dedicated to connection: connection with others, connection to services, and reconnection to yourself. We offer free peer support, tea, coffee, milo, fruit, and phone charging for all students. There’s a whole bunch of games, mindful colouring, giant jenga, and beanbags as well. Pull up a chair at a table with us and / or some other students. We’re the exact opposite of Mean Girls — you can sit with us.

It’s a super chill space. Feel free to rock on in and do your own thing. We will come and check in with you but if you’ve got your headphones in we’ll take the hint and leave you to nap or enjoy your tea.   

Our Bubble Leaders know the student services inside out, so if you’re feeling stuck, come chat to us and we’ll point you in the right direction — be it study, relationship, or money issues. We’re students ourselves so we know how you feel.

This space is a study free zone. It’s pretty much the only space at university where you shouldn’t feel that pressure to be working. There’s a kitchenette with hot water, two microwaves, and a sink. The space is ideal for you to take a lunch break.

Even if nothing is bothering you but you just want someone to give you a friendly smile and a chat about the weather, we’re pro at that too.

Our leaders are Anne, Daniel, Fiona, Kauri, Liv, and Tessa (me). Come and say hello!

The Bubble is located on Level Two of the Student Union Building (underneath the Hunter Lounge). It is staffed Monday to Friday, 11am-2pm.

In Which a Boy Leaves

: - SPONSORED - I’ve always been a fairly lucky kid. I essentially lucked out at birth, being born white, male, heterosexual, to a well off family. My life was never going to be particularly hard. And so my tale begins, with another stroke of sheer luck. After my girlfriend sugge
