Stress Less

24 May 2021 from 12:00am - 11 Jun 2021 until 12:00am

Stress Less, Chill More

Student Central's Stress Less initiative is back to help you bring this semester to a close with activities, entertainment and strategies to help you cope with and manage stress in the lead up to exams and assessments.

Live performers will soothe you with song at surprise locations and give you a nice little break - plus our team will be out and about bringing snack bags, evening meals and coffee vouchers to you.

But what else is happening?

Sit Down Stand Up Comedy is back and we're thrilled to announce Randy Feltface and Daniel Muggleton will be at Bar on the Hill on Wednesday 26 May at 7pm!

Students at Callaghan can visit the IT Service Point in the Auchmuty Library for a Virtual Reality Experience featuring a range of VR games to enjoy, plus a series of Microsoft Planner demonstrations to help you learn how to better manage your time. Visit the library between 10am - 12pm on 26 May, 2 June and 9 June to try it out!

  • Winter Warmers in the Library
    Late night warm snacks available in the 24/7 Student Kitchens
  • Chill Out Drop In Zones
    Puzzles and games in the Library spaces
