The Australian Parliament passed legislation allowing universities and other higher education providers to charge a fee for student services and amenities of a non-academic nature. The fee may be spent by higher education providers on items such as sporting and recreational activities, employment and career advice, childcare, financial advice and food services.

What Will the Money Go Towards?

The Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) contributes towards the funding for student services, support and facilities of a non-academic nature and of benefit to all students.

All of the income from the fee will be spent on services and amenities for students related to sporting and recreational activities, health and welfare, orientation, overseas student services and food services.

Student Consultation

We will consult with students and their representatives about what they see as the priorities for student services and amenities. Some of the fee income will need to be allocated directly to maintaining essential campus services and facilities , while some of it will allow the expansion of services or new services and facilities.

We will continue to consult with the Student Representative Council about priorities for student services and amenities, to ensure these funds are used for initiatives that give students the most benefit.

We also ask for input from all students on the priorities for student services and amenities. If you have ideas, comments or a proposal, please contact us at wsuic@westernsydney.edu.au.


SSAF Amounts

You will be charged a SSAF fee of $101 per term.
