Healthy Body

If you are keen to learn more about how the University can help you take care of your physical health – whether it’s getting fit, improving your sleep, concerns with your sexual health, or coping with stress – you’re in the right place.

Of course, it doesn’t take a doctor to tell us that the benefits of being fit and well extend well beyond university life. Exercising and eating well give us the energy we need to live life to the fullest, lead to better quality sleep, and can give us an emotional boost, helping to alleviate things like depression. Taking up sport, or dance, or going to the gym – whatever gets you going – is also a great way to achieve balance in life and clear your mind from the demands of study.

UniSA campuses house a number of gyms and health clinics which are available for you to use, whether you are studying on campus, externally or online. Plus find out about:

  • Sport: Whatever you’re into, UniSA can get you moving with great facilities, clubs and teams, and many an opportunity to flex those muscles.
  • Sleep: We all know that missing out on good sleep can leave you tired and irritable, but did you also know just how bad it is for your health?

  • Eating well: University life can be a busy time, trying to balance study, exams, social interactions and work commitments. Often nutrition can be overlooked or of low priority to students.

  • Managing stress: Manage the pressures of uni life with these stress-busting tips.

  • Ergonomics: What is ergonomics you ask? Put simply, it’s making sure your study environment is set up in a way that is good for your health.

  • Sexual Health: Let’s face it: sexual health can be an embarrassing topic. But it's an important one too.

  • Unplanned pregnancy: Get advice on how to cope with this significant life change.
