Situated on the beautiful Acton campus in Canberra, Bruce Hall has established itself as a true community of scholars, where individualism is respected and excellence in all things is encouraged. The Hall fosters a self-regulating community where diversity is celebrated and inclusivity nurtured.
A Bruce Hall experience lays strong leadership foundations, with many of our Alumni now enjoying successful careers in the judiciary, Parliament, leading universities and the corporate world. Being an integral part of one of Australia's premier research and teaching universities enhances the opportunities available.
In 2019, new and existing Bruce Hall residents had the opportunity to be among the first students to occupy the newly built state-of-the-art residence located on Daley Road at the head of University Avenue. The new residence was designed with input from students themselves, as it aimed to retain the community features that make Bruce Hall so special.
Our Motto & Symbol
Bruce Hall has its own charter, coat of arms and motto - which translates to 'Happy is the person able to discover the reason for things.' Likewise, an important emblem for the Hall is Uroboros; the image of a dragon devouring its own tail representing a being containing all life and knowledge.
- First ANU undergraduate residence, built in 1961.
- Named after Australian PM Stanley Melbourne Bruce.
- Renowned artist Pamela MacFarlane created the large painting of Uroboros in the Junior Common Room.
