SSA Fee Funded Projects

You told us and we listened. Here are some examples of how your Students Services and Amenities Fee has been used.







Student Lounge

The JCU Brisbane Student Lounge project was undertaken by the JCU Brisbane Student Council with the approval of the Vice Chancellor, and fully funded from the JCU Student Services and Amenities fee (paid by JCU students each Trimester).

The JCU Brisbane Student Lounge is set out over one floor of the Campus with areas for eating, relaxing and socialising. The interior is bright and colourful and designed as a comfortable space; like a ‘home away from home’.   The Lounge has facilities for gaming and other recreational activities. The new JCU Brisbane Student Lounge gives students a much needed space to meet and make friends, engage in enjoyable and relaxing activities, and find quiet corners to ‘chill out’ and enjoy a break from study.

The JCU Brisbane Student Council has plans to continue to improve the Lounge over the next twelve months to include a stage area, a projector for screening movies and more. This is an exciting new addition to the JCU Brisbane Campus and students are really looking forward to enjoying the area for many years to come.



MacBook Airs

Student's now have access to three MacBook Air laptops. These laptops are available to students on loan from level 2 Student Resource Centre.

ETA Halloween Party 2014

On the 31st October the Entertainment & Tourism Association (ETA) organised a Halloween Party for the current students of the university.
The highlights of the event included the DJ for the night DJ Bharath, current MITHM-MBA student at JCU Brisbane who kept students entertained throughout the night, the complimentary food and beverages were a big hit along with the Halloween decorations, turning level 5 into a scene out of a scary movie.
Over 130 students attended the event which kicked off the trimester break between SP 22 & SP 23, it was the perfect way to relax and let loose immediately after the stressful final exam period. The focus of the event was to give a comfortable space for students to mingle and get to know each other in a more informal manner, whilst dancing the night away to the DJ’s music.

Since Jan. 2014, with the ongoing successful events for the JCU Brisbane ETA, the Halloween party was one of the most highly anticipated events for the year 2014.
