Supporting essential services for our student community 

In 2011, the Federal Government passed legislation allowing universities to charge a Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) to fund non-academic programs and initiatives on campus.

Since 2012, Curtin has charged Commonwealth Supported Place students a
fee, Eligible students can apply to have this fee deferred through SA-HELP. (see LINK ).

This money is distributed by Curtin to distribute within
Government guidelines. The Guild and Curtin jointly sit on the SSAF Expense Advisory committee where all SSAF expenditure is accounted for, ensuring that your money is going to the right places.

The Guild's share of this is 50 per cent,  ensuring continued funding of the essential services and amenities.

Some of the services and amenities that SSAF funding supports includes welfare and advocacy, events, student spaces, sport and recreation, accommodation, careers, leadership programs and counselling, psychological and medical services.
