Join the fun: Easter on campus
Fancy joining some Easter festivities on campus, such as hunting for Easter eggs or munching on some hot cross buns? In the lead up to the long weekend, we'll be hosting an array of Easter activities across the metropolitan and regional campuses.

The activities will be held across this week, starting Monday 29 March through to Thursday 1 April. No registration is required, but the activities will be offered to students on a first come, first served basis. Check the website to see the full list of activities.

Please note: While Magill campus is not hosting any Easter celebrations this year, we encourage you to take part in activities at any of the other metropolitan campuses.

Tips from our counsellors: Settling into the semester
We know that it can be especially stressful trying to settle into your studies while managing other commitments, so we asked our friendly, knowledgeable UniSA counsellors for some tips on settling into uni.
Set aside dedicated study time in addition to your class contact hours
You can use a printed or digital timetable, or a study planner to help you plan your days, weeks and months.
Pinpoint assessment deadlines and get started on them early
Utilise your course outlines to help you prepare for the semester. We encourage you to take notes and highlight relevant course information, and locate online study resources available to your program.
Connect with your peers and get involved with campus life
Find out more about university life and expectations by chatting to your classmates, attending campus activities and events, reading the student newsletter and following UniSA on Facebook or Instagram.
Set realistic expectations about what you can achieve
Studying at uni can be challenging and can take some adjustment. Try not to overload yourself and make time for planning and preparing your assessments. Setting up routines around study and other commitments may help you manage your workload.
Ask questions and don’t hesitate to get the support you need
You can always get in touch with Campus Central for advice surrounding your program, your enrolment, exams and finance. To access support services such as counselling, international student support and study support, visit the Student Support Services page.
If you are feeling stressed and would like support to resolve any issues impacting on your wellbeing and study, you can make an appointment with a counsellor.

Help create a safer UniSA campus community with a new training module
At UniSA, we are committed to equity, respect, and delivering a physically and virtually safe study and work environment.

As a student, you can help us create a safer UniSA campus community by completing this new training module. It’s an online, self-paced program that’s designed to help you better understand what sexual assault and sexual harassment are, and how to offer support when someone tells you they have been sexually assaulted or sexually harassed.

UniSA staff are also able to provide appropriate support to students when required.
