What is the SSAF?

The Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) was reintroduced at QUT in 2012 and is a tax of up to $286 paid by all students. Each year the University collects $7 million of your money and spends it on staff wages and duplicating services you already receive for free.

The Guild believes that this tax not only imposes unreasonable hardship upon students, but undermines your freedom to choose what your hard-earned money is spent on.

The Guild continues to lobby the University, as well as Members of Parliament, to see that the SSAF is abolished.
