The University of Tasmania is committed to supporting its employees to improve their health and wellbeing.

HealthyU (formerly known as Active UTAS) is a holistic program designed to improve the health and wellbeing of University of Tasmania employees through the provision of a range of innovative and inclusive measures that target; participation in physical activity, policy development, nutrition and hydration, mental health and drugs and alcohol.

HealthyU seeks to overcome some of the barriers to participation in positive health and wellbeing opportunities, foster change in the workplace and encourages staff to make a commitment to their health on a daily basis.

The program includes a range of physical activity and educational workshop sessions at various times and locations in Hobart (HBT), Launceston (LTN), Cradle Coast (CC), Rozelle and Darlinghurst (NSW) campuses in a social group environment that not only improves health and wellbeing but cohesion, productivity and morale in the workplace. The majority of the day to day sessions are FREE, however, some costs may be involved with special events. It is recommended to mention you are a beginner to the instructor if you are new to the activity so the instructor can assist you more closely.

For information about the program and how to get involved, please contact the Lucy Byrne via email . If you are are unsure of the location of the session, please download a Campus Map.

IMPORTANT: Prior to commencing in an HealthyU activity, it is required you complete an Active Tasmania Participant Consent and Health Check and hand this in to your instructor/lifeguard. Even if you have participated in HealthyU activities in the past, a new form must be completed in 2016. Bookings are recommended but not essential for all physical activities.


"I am so glad that I discovered the Cognitive Change Program. It was just what I needed to kick start a new routine of health and fitness. It is only a start, but the pacing of the Program over twelve weeks meant that we made a commitment to keep going for that time and by the end of it I had really started to feel the benefits. "
Carolyn (Launceston)

"I would recommend the Cognitive Change Program to anyone who wants to make improvements in their health and wellbeing, whether it is to lose weight, to improve diet, or increase exercise, flexibility or fitness. But be prepared- the more you put in to it, the more you will get out of it. "
David (Hobart)
