Student services and amenities fee

The Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) is a compulsory fee approved by the Australian Government (see the Higher Education Legislation Amendment (Student Services and Amenities) Act 2011).

The purpose of the SSAF is to provide student services and amenities beyond those required for the academic work of the University.

At ECU, proceeds from the SSAF are allocated to a range of services and initiatives in areas including; health, counselling, sport and recreation, social clubs and societies, student welfare, careers advice, student advocacy, orientation, production and dissemination to students of media, and student representation.

The University Council has set the fee for 2020 at $308.00 per year for full-time on-campus students.

The new SSAF level is effective for studies commencing on or after 1 January 2020.
