Talk to your Senate representatives

We can help you raise an issue, find the right service, or propose a change at the University.

You can contact us via webform, email, or send a message to our Facebook page. You can contact the Senate's Executive Officer by phone on (03) 5327 8210. Or you can contact a specific representative from the list below.

Using our webform, you can lodge a complaint or raise an issue - and you can even do so anonymously! Though, we strongly recommend you provide some contact information so we can ask for more information if needed and keep you updated about outcomes and responses from the University.

We take your privacy seriously! Your Student Representatives may raise your issue or complaint on your behalf with staff at the University, but they will never identify you or provide any identifying information about you without your explicit permission.

We have representatives on every campus who can meet with you.

In April 2022 Federation's six schools were merged into three interdisciplinary institutes. The Student Senate Terms of Reference are currently being reviewed and updated to reflect these changes, with further information to be provided in October 2022. School representatives will continue to act on behalf of students within their disciplines while this change is made.
