Student Support

We want to encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to study at Western. So, we offer you access to a great range of services, like career advice, tutors, medical help, counselling, computers, study spaces, a kitchen and printing facilities – even opportunities to study abroad.

If you feel unsafe or want someone to escort you to your car, call the 24/7 security hotline on 1300 737 003. Keep your eye out for the many emergency contact points as well. Just press the button and a security officer will be with you in moments.

Got little ones? Take advantage of Western’s fantastic childcare centre. It’s open from 7.30am to 6pm, and offers long-day or occasional care for $10 an hour.

If you’re feeling down or stressed, get in touch with Western’s counselling service. Our qualified social workers and psychologists have got your back.

If you have a disability, chronic health condition or temporary injury, the Disability Services team can help with things like pre-admission, note takers, readers, sign interpreters, video and podcast transcripts, assistive technology, textbooks and materials in alternative formats, the list goes on.

Sometimes it’s hard to make ends meet. Find out if you’re eligible for student welfare. We can help you with all sorts of things, like buying textbooks or food, questions about Centrelink, budgeting and tax returns.
