Oasis is a community centre on the Bedford Park campus, but also a growing online community of students who are interested in building community, diversity, inclusion, health, wellbeing, faith and spirituality. The team at Oasis is committed to helping you succeed at university, make life-long connections and enjoy the journey along the way. Oasis offers services and programs that cover a diverse range of topics. Meet the team in this intro video.

During the extended 2022 orientation program at Flinders, Oasis will be running regular online events where you can get a taste of the different programs that we run.

The online sessions are being hosted in Collaborate, which is like Zoom but is the university’s program for running online lectures and workshops. In some cases (e.g. meditation), there is the option to attend the session in-person at the Oasis Centre.

Getting into the Collaborate sessions is as easy as clicking a link (on the right date and time of course).

Below are all the links to get into our orientation events during the 4-week extended orientation period sorted by program area.
