Useful Info

We want to make sure SAS is accessible to all students who need our help. So, please note:

  • Only currently enrolled UQ undergraduate and postgraduate students are eligible for this service

  • Students may book only one SAS appointment per week (to ensure equitable access for all)

  • Appointments must be cancelled 24 hours prior to the appointment time. Repeat cancellations or no shows may mean you are ineligible for future assistance.

Counselling Support

Currently SAS does not have the capacity to provide counselling support. If you are looking for counselling services then you can call Student Services on 3365 1704. Additionally, your GP may be able to create a Mental Health Treatment Plan for you, or you can contact your local Headspace Centre to come and see someone there.

Rapid Testing have partnered with SAS and UQ Health Care to provide testing for HIV, Syphilis, Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea.

No needles. Same day results. Pain free. Bookings not required. Free of charge.
