Student services and amenities fee

The Higher Education Legislation Amendment (Student Services and Amenities) Bill was passed in late 2011 by the Australian Parliament, allowing universities and other higher education providers to charge an annual student services and amenities fee from 2012. The amendment is a government initiative to increase student support services and facilities in Australian universities. The student services and amenities fee (SSAF) has applied to international students at UTS since January 2014. Funds raised from this fee are used to provide students with services and amenities on campus.
