Compass Drop In Centre is a safe space for students with any questions or concerns.
We are from the RUSU Welfare Department with centres at the City, Bundoora and Brunswick campuses.
Compass Drop In Centre is a stepping stone for students to information and services within RMIT and out in the community.
At Compass, we are here to support students by offering advice, information and referrals regarding a wide range of psychosocial issues students experience. Being a university student is hard and there are many life stressors that pop up during study. We offer support in areas such as (but not limited to) mental health, relationship issues, homelessness, financial stress and much more.
