Health and Wellbeing

Healthy Campus

Southern Cross University is passionate about offering a range of health and wellbeing programs to assist our university community to pursue a happy, healthy, well balanced lifestyle whilst studying and working.


Southern Cross University has teamed with UniSport Australia and Sport Australia to develop the SCU Moves Mobile App!

Australia has always been known as a great sporting nation — a country that glows with health and vitality. But lately, things have changed.

“Sport participation by Australians is becoming increasingly passive. Australians need to put down the remote control and mobile devices and head outdoors for a half-hour walk.” — Dr David Hughes, AIS Chief Medical Officer.

SCU Moves aims to help staff and students at the Southern Cross University to commit to at least a minimum of 30 minutes of activity every day. The aim is to reach at least 100 moves on the App each day.  Where you find your 30 is up to you, the app is designed to support you, give you ideas, and remind you to move. It also tracks your moves and progress over time.

So, Southern Cross University, it’s time to get moving!

Get ready to …

  • Track your activity levels
  • Track your workouts in the gym (if that’s your thing)
  • Challenge your mates and colleagues to see who moves more
