A balanced lifestyle means you can focus on study – and remain well when you put the books down for a break. At each of our campuses, you’ll have ample opportunity to shake off a heavy class or study session, and talk through any concerns. For us, it’s about you.

Reach out and recharge

Exercise your body after giving your brain a workout and you’ll feel the benefits. But physical activity isn’t the only way to look after your health and wellbeing. We look after your whole person.

If you need to talk with someone in order to stay well, you can always book an appointment with a counsellor, chat with one of the campus ministry team or drop into a medical centre at our campuses in Brisbane or Melbourne.

And, if you do want to stretch those muscles and add some physical activity to your day, there are swimming pools at our Brisbane and Canberra campuses, and gyms at Brisbane, Melbourne and Strathfield. We run fitness classes on every campus, too, and you can take part in the jam-packed weekly event calendar of The Track on our Melbourne Campus.

Community facilities

Our gyms are open to the local community, so you don’t have to be a student to join.
