LTSA - What do we do?


LTSA work hard to make student life better! We provide outstanding student support and services for La Trobe Students on the Bendigo, City, Mildura, Shepparton and Wodonga campuses, and to support all International Students. We are funded by your SSAF (Student Services and Amenities Fee), a compulsory fee charged to La Trobe Uni students to fund non-academic services and amenities.

So what are we doing with your money?

We are providing Advocacy.

LTSA’s advocates support students with any issues they may have with the university for example; misconduct allegations, attending hearings, accommodation concerns, remission of debt, special consideration, review and re-mark of assessment, placement issues, general admin and more.

They can also assist with non-Uni related problems as well like making referrals, liaising with people on your behalf and helping you access information. This service is confidential and independent of the university. Our average wait time for advocacy services is 2 days maximum. Where possible, we see students on the same day.

We organise Events

We are committed to providing a wide range of events to suit every student. The majority of events have been online due to COVID however we are looking forward to running face to face events when we are able. We regularly run online yoga and meditation as part of our well-being offering. We offer trivia nights, parties, day trips and celebrate calendar events like Pride week and NAIDOC week.

We are supporting our Student Councils

LTSA is governed by an elected student Governing Board of Directors.  Student Council reps attend an induction retreat where they receive governance training. We provide them with ongoing support, guidance and mentorship.
