FUNDS SUPPORT YOUR STUDENT WELLBEING
The Student Services and Amenities Fee funds a range of wellbeing support services available to all students — whether you study online or on campus.
These services span health and medical, mental health, financial support, educational assistance, clubs and societies, careers and employment services and student organisations. Even if you access just one or two of these services a trimester, the SSAF represents excellent value for money.
Student representative groups work in partnership with the University to decide how these funds are allocated, ensuring all types of students have a voice in deciding how the money is spent.
To find out more, including services the SSAF currently funds, visit the Student Services and Amenities Fee site.
