We are a healthy university. We provide an environment that boosts the health, wellbeing and sustainability of our community and enables people to achieve their full potential. A range of programs are available to staff that promote positive physical and mental health.
You can take advantage of a Corporate Wellness Program that offers Tai Chi and Pilates classes, personal training, feet checks, free flu vaccinations, heart checks and many other things to keep you fit and healthy. The Forum Sports and Aquatic Centre is on the doorstep of our Newcastle campus (Callaghan) and offers gym facilities, a 50m indoor Olympic swimming pool, basketball courts, volleyball courts and much more. With a medical centre and dentist on campus medical help is on hand when you need it.
We have got your family covered too. Our Fitness Passport allows you and your family to access a range of local gyms and pools. The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) gives you and your family six free confidential counselling sessions a year.
