Welcome to all the new students starting with us mid-year!

Welcome to Flinders University! As Orientation begins, remember that health and wellbeing services are here for you, including access to GPs, nurses, counsellors, and the Oasis centre.

Orientation for mid-year is kicking off today!

As I write this, the hub is starting to take shape.

On behalf of Health, Counselling and Disability Services and Oasis, I’d like to welcome all new students to Flinders. It is great to have you as part of our community 😊

I’m excited for the adventure you have ahead of you.

Orientation is quite the experience and there will be lots for you to wrap your head around.

The Orientation website is your portal to all the various things you need to know about starting your studies.

Whilst there is a lot that I’d love to tell you, I won’t add too much to your busy headspace.

All you need to know is there are health and wellbeing services here at Flinders should you need them. You can see GPs, nurses, counsellors and disability advisors. You can engage with the Oasis centre and team to find a home away from home and access social and wellbeing programs. Most of our programs are summarised on this page. If you feel like a bit of reading during a quiet moment (if such a thing exists during orientation), consider our Getting off to a good start guide.

News about our services and programs is delivered via our newsletter which goes out weekly. Subscribe here. Rather than having to learn upfront what everything is, you can instead hear about stuff as you go.

But there is plenty of time for that. My wish is that you have a great couple of orientation weeks, find your lectures, make a few new acquaintances, and strap yourself in for an excellent learning journey.

If you have questions about the health and wellbeing side of university, feel free to contact me: gareth.furber@flinders.edu.au

🌟 If you are an existing student and you see someone looking a little lost, please offer them a hand 🌟
