Flinders is a multi-campus university.

At Oasis we recognise this and are increasing our efforts to have a presence at the different campuses.

Maria, one of our chaplains is our Sturt person.

You will find Maria sitting in the Sturt Library on Wednesdays during term time from 10.30 to 12.30 with the Oasis banner and flyers to raise awareness of Oasis and provide an actual person to talk to, a welcome change from a couple of years talking to each other from behind screens.

She reports that she is already having some great interactions with students, so we encourage you to visit her and have a chat.

She can let you know about the programs we run and the resources we offer, or she is just a nice person to chat to about your university experience: the highlights and the lowlights. On that note, students sometimes think that chaplains are there only for students of faith, but they are there for anyone who needs a listening ear.

If you go to visit Maria and she isn’t there (things come up), you can contact her to book a time to chat via her email maria.ng@flinders.edu.au 📩

If you are at Tonsley, not Sturt, we have good news! Chaplain Toh is now set up at Tonsley 😊
