March 2012

The Australian video gaming public looks set to realise its long-standing dream of an R18+ classification rank after a Federal Parliamentary Committee Inquiry strongly endorsed the bill to amend the 1995 Classification Act late last month.

The bill, which was referred to the committee after being introduced on February 15, is set to become legislation effective at the beginning of next year. Proponents of the new Classification Amendment Bill have criticised the current system as being flawed, unfair and ineffective.

On January 3 this year UNSW launched The Hub, an university-funded initiative that seeks to provide a central space for students in the areas of “student development, participation and engagement”.

Located on the upper-campus between the Morven Brown Building and the Central Lecture Block (CLB), The Hub states that they are a multidisciplinary team, providing support and new opportunities for UNSW students to enrich their on-campus experience.
