In the topics below you will find a range of information, tips and links to all the essential services and systems you will need.

Our campuses in Hobart and Launceston are vibrant places to study and live. There are many facilities available for you right here. Places to study quietly, eat great food, play sport, buy supplies, meet people and more.

For campus maps and more information on campus facilities visit the campuses page.

The campuses are only a short bus or bike ride to the city. For bus travel you can collect a student Metro Greencard during orientation or anytime at the Uni shop or Metro store (Hobart only).

If you wish to ride your bike, please note that it is compulsory to wear a helmet at all times. See the Government website for other regulations for bike riding.

Please visit Ask Us for more information, or see these questions below to get you started:

  • MyLO (My Learning Online): For many units, MyLO houses unit outlines, lecture recordings and is where you submit assignments. You will need your UTAS username and password to log in to MyLO, and you will also need to have completed your enrolment before your unit information becomes available. Unit information usually becomes available in MyLO on the first day of semester. Your Student Advisers have prepared the following guides help you become familiar with MyLO: Understanding MyLO Part One and Understanding MyLO Part Two.
  • eStudent: This is where you manage all administrative aspects of your study plan including enrolment, your contact details, fees, exams and graduation. Please ensure that your contact details in eStudent are up-to-date at all times.  See ASK US for more information.
  • Webmail: The University uses UTAS webmail (within your free Office 365) as the main way of communicating with you. Please check your webmail regularly. When you have your username and password, you can use these to login to webmail using the Microsoft Outlook app or with Microsoft Office 365.
  • Wireless Internet: Join the University's wireless internet network, Eduroam. The Eduroam website has step by step instructions to help get you set up, either on your computer or smart device.
