A unique location, a unique University experience.

Open Day is one of the most exciting occasions on the University of Tasmania calendar. It’s our chance to open our campuses to the community, and showcase the unique lifestyle and quality study opportunities we offer.

At Open Day you will have the chance to explore our labs, libraries, lecture theatres, and more. You will get the chance to hear what University life is like from the experts: our students, staff, and graduates.

And there will be lots of information on study options, scholarships, pathways, and careers. There will also be a range of family-friendly activities, informative presentations and demonstrations, food, entertainment, and giveaways. Our aim is to make sure you leave us informed, inspired, and motivated to start your higher education journey.

The University of Tasmania's
Open Day 2017

Last year’s Open Day invited future students across the state to get a taste of uni life, participate in a range of activities, and learn about the courses we offer.

South (Hobart)

The University of Tasmania’s Sandy Bay campus is set on 100 hectares in the beachside suburb of Sandy Bay, five minutes from the city centre. This scenic campus sits between kunyani/Mount Wellington and the Derwent River and fringed by natural bushland. The campus is close to shops, transport, accommodation, entertainment and services. Many of the University’s faculties are based at the Sandy Bay campus, making it a great destination to find out about all courses and disciplines.

North West (Burnie)

The Cradle Coast Campus is based on Tasmania’s beautiful north-west coast, in the heart of the Burnie community. Cradle Coast is home to the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA) and shares close links with the University’s Rural Clinical School (RCS) in Burnie and at the Mersey Community Hospital in Latrobe. The West Park Precinct is home to the Makers’ Workshop, CollabLab and new accommodation facilities, housed right on the picturesque waterfront.

North (Inveresk)

The Inveresk campus is situated in a vibrant cultural hub next to the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery overlooking the picturesque North Esk River. As home to the Tasmanian College of the Arts and the School of Architecture and Design, it is a great study destination for those interested in areas like architecture, art, and acting. The Inveresk campus also forms the heart of the University’s Education-Driven Economic Revitalisation of the Northern Tasmania project – a $260 million investment into Tasmania’s future. The proposed new facilities at Inveresk will house 16,000 students, researchers and staff, and will include student hubs, innovation centres, and cutting-edge science and research teaching spaces.

North (Newnham)

Our Newnham campus overlooks the Tamar River and is a particularly excellent destination for those interested in maritime, nursing, and IT. The Newham campus is home to the Australian Maritime College (AMC), Australia’s national centre for maritime education and training known globally for its quality teaching and research facilities. The campus has a strong focus on cutting-edge technology. Newnham features the Nursing Simulation Labs and the Human Interface Technology Lab (HITLab AU), the only facility of its kind in Australia. There is also a range of affordable accommodation options, including the new self-contained Newnham Apartments.
