Student Services and Amenities Fee

What is the SSAF?

The compulsory Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) charged to most students who are studying on campus.  SSAF is used to support Student Services and Amenities of a non-academic nature:  

  • Recreational activities including clubs, societies and campus events
  • Sporting activities and facilities
  • Student Advocacy
  • Legal advice
  • Financial advice
  • Support for student organisation
  • Infrastructure for non-academic activities


In 2011 the Australian Government legislated that the SSAF could be spent on support services and amenities such as sporting and recreational activities, employment and career advice, financial advice and food services.  All higher education providers around Australia are entitled to charge a SSAF.  SSAF is embedded into your tuition fees.
