Wellbeing

We are making some changes to refresh and improve your student support services at Macquarie, and the location of some services has changed. To find out more about what's happening with our services, go to our Student Success Network information page.


Macquarie University offers a range of wellbeing services that are available to you any time during your studies. Student Wellbeing is here to support you and help you succeed, both academically and personally.

As part of our commitment to improving your university experience, we have extended our health and wellbeing services to provide 24-hour information and referral services for all Macquarie University students.

Dialling 1800 CARE MQ (1800 2273 67) makes it even easier to get helpful information when you really need it. It's free, anytime, any day.
