Student Senate

The Student Senate is the University's peak student representative body. We are here to:

  • raise your feedback with senior University staff,
  • advocate on your behalf and represent Federation students,
  • help you find the right university service on campus and online,
  • work with you to propose a change at Federation University.

We are governed by our Terms of Reference v.6 (pdf 256kb).

The Terms of Reference v.6 are currently under review to reflect the amended Statutes and Regulations approved by Council on 16 August 2022. Please contact the Senate Executive Officer with any questions regarding this change.
