Student services and amenities fee
The student services and amenities fee (SSAF) supports the provision of a wide range of non-academic services and amenities to all students. Curtin uses the SSAF revenue to enhance the university experience, and to expand and improve services and amenities.
Find out more about the amenities and facilities that are provided.
SSAF is automatically charged when you enrol in your units. You will need to generate your eInvoice to view your SSAF and make a payment.
The SSAF is calculated based on your:
- enrolled credit points, or equivalent full time study load (EFTSL) for research students
- your location of study and study mode (e.g. internal or external).
The tables below can be used to determine your approximate SSAF amount.
