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, quiet spaces, kitchen with microwaves to heat your lunch, 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 who can help connect you to a wide range of university and community resources;
  • Participate in wellbeing-focused programs run by OASIS staff including meditation, yoga, conversation groups and more;
  • Join us for our weekly Community Market every Thursday with free fruit and vegetables and low-cost pantry items.

If you can’t join us in person, join us online instead at the Oasis Online FLO topic (log into FLO first). Many of our programs are replicated like conversation groups, wellbeing workshops and more.

We can’t wait to meet you online or in person šŸ˜€
