FedUni facilities and services

We provide a range of support services and facilities for all students.

Art galleries

The Switchback Gallery at the Gippsland Campus, and the Post Office Gallery at the Camp St Campus, host exhibitions from students and other artists.


The Counselling Service is free, confidential and voluntary. Counsellors can help students with:

  • personal skills such as motivation, time management, exam preparation, oral presentations, working in groups;
  • understanding the way the University works, interpreting 'official language', knowing who to ask about what;
  • dealing with difficult personal situations.

Spiritual facilities

The Gippsland Campus has a multi-faith spiritual centre, which is a sacred and quiet space for prayer, reflection and meditation. It is open on weekdays, with bookings available by calling + 61 3 5122 6425

The Centre is located in room 1N105, next to the Gippsland Campus bookshop.

The Mt Helen Campus has a non-denominational prayer room/Place of peace, located in the U Building, and a Muslim prayer room in the G Building. For more information contact the International Student Programs office.
