Working together to support your university experience
Your university experience is about more than textbooks, assignments and exams. Your student representative groups, in partnership with the University, work together to provide a range of wellbeing services, delivered both in and out of the classroom, that are accessible to all students. While at university, you can access a range of services to support your wellbeing - all delivered using Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) funds.
Services supported by SSAF
Your health is the foundation of your success at university. SSAF funds support a range of services to assist you to maintain your physical health and wellbeing including subsidised food, health and medical services, food bursaries, welfare services, sporting facilities, recreational activities, and club administration.
You can access a range of services that support your mental health and wellbeing that are delivered using SSAF funds. These services include online counselling and mental health services.
Griffith’s social wellbeing services funded by the SSAF include support for artistic activities, assistance with club administration, assistance with securing accommodation, legal advice and support for the production and dissemination of student media to students.
SSAF supports a range of services to assist you to maintain your educational wellbeing including assisting with the transition to university, providing orientation information, assisting with the development of study skills, advocating student’s interests and providing advice to students in relation to the University’s rules.
Several financial wellbeing services are supported by SSAF funding. If you are in need, you can gain assistance with your financial affairs, budgeting and scholarship applications.
You can access career advice and resources to help secure work both during and after your studies. These services are supported by SSAF funding and can make a meaningful difference to your employability.
Student representative groups provide a range of services and run a variety of events using SSAF funds. Visit their websites to find out more.
The money that the Student Representative Council receives from the SSAF is so important for helping provide different opportunities for our students. We have been especially busy due to COVID-19. In the past week alone, the collective SRC has processed and approved 215 grocery bursaries, including 43 for South Bank. Just prior to the South Bank closure, we set up a free food bank for struggling students and we aim to help with art supplies as prizes to online competitions and digital social events for our students. Hopefully we can continue on this path and keep supporting our campus in whatever way we can, because I know we really do make a difference to students’ lives.
