2019 Student Services and Amenities Fee

Student Service and Amenities Fee funds are used to provide a wide range of services and amenities for students, and to support student-focused initiatives.

Generally all students who are enrolled in 12.5 points (usually 1 subject or 0.125 EFTSL) study load or greater across the calendar year pay the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF).

If you are a current student or would like more detail about paying your SSAF visit our current student information on fees.

The Government’s Study Assist website provides more information about Commonwealth Supported Places, HECS-HELP and SA-HELP.

Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) and Research Training Scheme students are invoiced by the University for the fee, while international and domestic fee-paying students pay the fee as part of their course fee.
