- financial aid
- legal aid
- clubs and societies

A motion has come before the senate (below) which looks to drastically limit its scope to support students.

One in three disadvantaged students are dropping out due to financial and academic pressures. With sufficient support from universities and the government through fully funded support services this statistics would not be the reality for so many.
The effect would be disproportionally worse for students at rural and regional campuses who do not have access to the resources and facilities that metropolitan campuses have.
