SSAF Funding

SSAF (Student Services and Amenities Fee) supports the enhancement of non-academic services to students. UON delivers a broad range of SSAF funded services to students, including support for student run organisations, their events and activities. To be eligible to apply for funding your club must be either registered with Student Central or affiliated with a Student Association (NUSA, NUPSA, or Yourimbah).

Clubs seeking to renew their registration with Student Central for 2019 can do so by completing this online form. New clubs seeking to register with Student Central are asked to complete this form.

Funding applications

Clubs and societies are able to submit applications for SSAF event subsidies. The financial support available to recognised clubs and societies of the University is delivered through SSAF and must adhere to the specific guidelines laid down by the Australian government under SSAF legislation. The guidelines for funding for 2019 are outlined in the SSAF Funding Guidelines (PDF, 426KB).

Clubs registered with Student Central can submit their applications for funding for 2019 here.

Financial support for affiliated clubs and societies will be provided by the relevant student entity – NUSA, NUPSA, or Yourimbah. Regardless of your club’s choice to register with Student Central or affiliate with a student entity, the University-approved funding guidelines will be consistently applied.
