Welcome to Oasis

A faith friendly home away from home

Oasis offers hospitality, promotes well-being and fosters inclusive spirituality - inspiring a culture of care at Flinders University and in the wider community.

Oasis does this by providing a safe, inclusive drop-in centre, facilitated by a team of volunteers who enable interpersonal, intercultural and interfaith respect and understanding.

In this friendly, informal environment, students can meet, make connections, find friendship and support and create initiatives that advance the Oasis ethos.

Oasis also supports initiatives by staff, hosting inter-disciplinary, inter-cultural, and inter-religious endeavour in keeping with the Oasis ethos.

Oasis offers its experiences of innovation and transformation to the wider local, national and international community.


Opening hours

Monday to Friday, 8.00am to 4.00pm (including semester breaks).
Closed on public holidays.
