If you or someone else needs urgent help outside of business hours, or on public holidays you can call or SMS the After Hours Crisis Counselling Support Line. The free and confidential service will link you to a qualified crisis support worker.

Here, students can access a rich array of information, resources, self-guided tutorials, and connections to external support groups and organisations, all designed to aid students in their academic and personal growth.

Embedded in this hub is a selection of specific e-learning modules designed to increase students’ understanding of contributing to a respectful and inclusive academic, social, and cultural environment.

Student associations

Southern Cross University’s Ally Network is a university-wide commitment to the inclusion, success and celebration of our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTIQ+) students and colleagues. We believe that students and staff should be able to bring their whole selves to their study and work. Each Ally contributes to raising LGBTIQ+ awareness at the University by making support for gender and sexuality diversity visible and, if necessary, challenging homophobic and transphobic attitudes and behaviours.
