The Centre for Student Support Services (CSSS) develops an exciting, stimu​lating and supportive campus environment, which enhances student learning on multiple levels.

The focus is to engage students’ potential in order to assist them in achieving their personal and academic goals, and to develop responsible  and responsive citizens of the future.

The CSSS provides broad student-centered development and professional services, programs, training opportunities and resources aimed at enhancing students’ academic expe​riences, graduate attributes and quality of life. We conduct research and engage with national issues and debates to provide a cutting edge service. We have dynamic professionals, who provid​e high quality, free and confidential services.
