Focus on your health and wellbeing.
Week 4 is Wellbeing Week!
University life can be rewarding, but also challenging when balancing study with other commitments! Here at Flinders, were committed to supporting your physical and mental wellbeing.
The purpose of Wellbeing Week is to connect you with self-help resources available to students at Flinders University.
Due to our current global health situation, Wellbeing Week is looking a little different than we had first planned. Instead of providing a range of events, we are bringing you a range of online resources, information and fun activities to support your wellbeing in your new learning environment.
For the most up-to-date information form Flinders University about COVID-19 (Coronavirus) visit the student website.
Top tips for the week
- Explore the student services Flinders University provides for students and how you can still access this support if you’re not on campus.
- Connect with Flinders Sport and Fitness online for free home workouts and health tips. Follow Flinders Sport and Fitness on Instagram (@flindersunisportfitness) and like them on Facebook.

Activities to help your wellbeing:
All students starting at Flinders in 2020 will be given access to the online orientation topic Finding Your Way at Flinders, through Flinders Learning Online (FLO). This topic has been created to; help you get to know how university works, introduce you to the skills you need to be successful at University, and provide information about where to go for help if you need (Flinders has loads of support services).
You should be able to see this topic under the ‘Additional’ tab in FLO. You would have also received a direct link by email. (Please note: you will be added to the ‘Finding Your Way at Flinders’ topic within a week after you enrol for Semester One at Flinders.)
