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.7 (pdf 274kb).

The Student Senate Induction Manual is provided to all Student Senate Representatives.
