At UNSW, the money that students contribute to the Student Services Amenities Fee ('SSAF') is spent on a broad range of support and engagement activities that help to make life at UNSW the best possible experience. Those activities include supporting the student organisation Arc; student health and wellbeing; sport and recreation; clubs and societies; extra-curricular programs; orientation activities; and a full range of international student support programs.

The University SSAF steering committee, which includes representation from democratically elected student leaders, meets six times a year and provides oversight and advice to the University with respect to SSAF, including the annual allocation of funding.

In 2020 the allocation of SSAF funding has shifted its focus to supporting students in an online environment, in particular creating and implementing new health and wellbeing programs.
