Oasis, Your Community Wellbeing Centre

Oasis on the Bedford Park Campus, is a Student Community Wellbeing Centre focused on supporting the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of students, so they can achieve academic and personal success. We call it “Wellbeing for Success”. At the centre students can:

  • Use our facilities – lounge spaces to study and socialise (free tea and coffee!), quiet spaces, prayer rooms, a courtyard garden and a large bookable space for events and activities;
  • Meet and connect with other students from around the world;
  • Chat to our chaplains and student volunteers to connect you to a wide range of university and community resources;
  • Participate in wellbeing-focused programs run by Oasis staff including meditation, conversation groups and more (check out our weekly timetable here);
  • Join us for our weekly Community Market every Thursday with free bread, fruit and vegetables and low-cost pantry items 

You can also join our online community on Instagram or Facebook. We can’t wait to meet you online or in person.
