Health & Counselling
Managing your health is an important part of life as a university student. We have facilities and services available to help you look after your physical and mental health throughout the year.
There’s more to looking after your health than simply seeing a doctor when you’re not feeling well. Murdoch University Health provides medical and counselling services to help with the ups and downs of university life.
Our Health Service staff have a real understanding of what is important to our students and are here to make it easy for you to look after yourself, manage stress and enjoy a healthy lifestyle

Our counselling team is here to support you with a range of support services:
- We run group and workshops on a number of topics, including how to beat stress and procrastination and strategies to help you through exam time.
