Fenner Hall


  • Named after Australian scientist Frank John Fenner (1914-2010).


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. It is recognised as being an affordable accommodation facility, with students coming from diverse socio-economic background including a mix of undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Fenner Hall is located within Kambri overlooking the stunning Sullivan's Creek, the university's new teaching spaces and cultural and events centre. It embodies a combination of preserving the traditions of community life bolstered by a spectacular modern infrastructure. Residents enjoy being in close proximity of the cafes and restaurants that adds vibrancy to the 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 buildings generate better internal air quality and require fewer Wi-Fi repeaters.


  • Named after Australian scientist Frank John Fenner (1914-2010).


Fenner Hall Crest


Fennehr Hall further develops the strong residential focus of ANU with the traditional pastoral model of a Head of Hall, Senior Residents (SRs) and Community Coordinators (CCs). These leaders will all work closely with the resident committee and resident committee president to ensure the students are safe, supported and can make the most of their time in residence.

Academic support

Reception is open 5 days a week and provides a comprehensive academic and pastoral support. Our Residents Committee organises social, sporting and arts events regularly throughout the year.

Common areas

Each floor has its own common room that provides students with a beautiful view over campus, the city and Black Mountain. It also has lounges on the ground and first floors, study rooms, a computer room, music room and several multi-purpose rooms, which all help create a connected student community.
