For both current and future students, university administrative processes can be daunting and frustrating, particularly when you are studying remotely.
We can help with navigating university learning portals and connection with the appropriate university services to meet your individual needs.

Quiet Study Spaces
Students come to our Centre because they want a quiet study space where they can focus solely on their studies without the interruptions they face at home. We have tailored our environment with students at the forefront of our thinking.
If you need a quiet study space without the interruptions and competing demands of home, check out our Centre.
Our Centre has three key study areas:
- a dedicated quiet study room with computers and space to bring personal devices to work on;
- tutorial rooms, which can be used for seminars, tutorials, workshops, exams and group work; and
- space for student collaboration and break out, including a kitchen and student lounge area.
Since study in the daytime isn’t always possible, our Centre is open to registered students from 7:00 am to 12:00 midnight, seven days a week, and are staffed during business hours.
If your Wi-Fi has ever dropped out when a deadline is approaching, you will know that reliable, fast interest is essential for online study. Our Centre offers students access to high-speed internet (100 Mbps connection), back up battery to keep you connected, printing & copying facilities, video conferencing facilities, desktop computers & BYO spaces. We run workshops to help settle students into their study, with a particular focus on navigating their university’s learning portal and enhancing academic skills.
We can take the stress out of sitting exams remotely.
Our Centre offers professional exam invigilation services with qualified supervision and exam rooms. We also offer remote proctoring for the increasing number of online university exams.
