Murdoch Maps Web App

Find your Way around Campus

Our Campus has evolved over the years and with it we have seen movements of schools, rooms and facilities to meet the needs of our staff and students.  As our facilities grow, we want to ensure everyone is able to get around easily and vitally, not get lost!

To help with Campus navigation, we are pleased to announce the introduction of the Murdoch Maps web app. This application is available via mobile (iOS or Android) or desktop device with an internet connection and will provide you with Campus navigational support.

 This first version of the Murdoch Maps web app includes the Perth Campus map with the following functionality:

·         Where am I? – the map identifies your current location

·         I need to find… – search for a room (names or numbers), lecture theatre or points of interest (such as UniBank, the Tavern, etc.) around Campus

·         Get me there! –  mapping to provide you with a visual pathway and text directions showing you the best way to get to your destination

·         Feedback – let us know what we can include or change in future versions of the app!

We have already planned some enhancements to this app and will soon be introducing disability routes, internal routes (within a building directly to your room) and the Murdoch and Rockingham campus maps!

This new app will be available shortly via either the Campus Map page on the Murdoch University website, or via the QR Code link you will see on promotional posters around Perth Campus.

Odd Socks – FRINGE REVIEWS

In a rehearsal room downstairs of the State Theatre Centre I was one of the last to enter and crossed the floor to my seat. There was a man sitting on a couch in the middle of the stage but he was already in character, and barely noticeable. It was a low-fi stage setting of a small apartment where all but blended pineapples would occur. Door frame, couch and packing boxes provided the hardware to this Megan Hollier and Gemma Hall project, that pits two opposing characters against each other for a night of introspection and cocktails.

Charles (George Ashworth) has just stopped packing his apartment to have dinner, unaware as to how his night was about to change, when Mia (Megan Hollier) bursts into what she thinks is her front door. The clash of characters is non-more apparent than at first impression although throughout the play this was a pairing that didn’t match. The dissonance created by the two allows for personal revelations and conversations that wouldn’t normally be had.

The ambitious introvert and the happy-go-lucky extrovert is always a favourite pairing of mine and it is no different on this occasion. Odd Socks is well-paced and Megan and George give great performances. It traps you in its awkwardness early and lets the actors open it up toward the end and they deliver a great climatic scene.

4/5 Stars

Odd Socks is on tonight and tomorrow (Sat 4th) at the The Flaming Locomotive Engine Room, State Theatre Centre.
