Where is SSAF going?

SSAF allocation

RMIT collects more than $14 million in Student Service and Amenities fees each year to support the delivery of student services, programs, activities and events for RMIT students. Find out where your SSAF is going.


Your SSAF, Your Say

Your voice helps inform how your Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) supports student life outside of the classroom at RMIT. As part of the annual student consultation process, RMIT students who pay SSAF are emailed a survey, asking them to choose their top five listed initiatives. The survey results are then used to inform funding decisions.

Your SSAF covers a range of services and supports, delivering thousands of the experiences that help make RMIT student life great. See how far your SSAF reached in 2019.

We also ensure that your voice is incorporated with other consultation processes - find out more in About SSAF.
