Fenner Hall is one of ANU's newest residential halls which opened its door in February 2019. Fenner Hall is located in the heart of Kambri, and is home to 450 residents from all over Australia and across the world, lending itself to a truly blended community.
The hall was designed with sustainability in mind, and is the first student residence in Australia to be built with cross laminated timber, an engineered wood that is making the construction of timber buildings a reality. Timber is the only truly renewable structural material available for construction and its use is reducing the carbon footprint of Kambri significantly. Timber buildings generate better internal air quality and require fewer Wi-Fi repeaters. Some of the timber will be exposed throughout the new accommodation providing a natural feel to the environment.
Residents enjoy the benefit of living in the heart of campus and being in close proximity of the cafes and restaurants that adds vibrancy to the community.
