We'll put you alongside community and industry as you enjoy a world-class student experience.
Cradle Coast campus
We’ve opened our brand-new waterfront campus at West Park in Burnie - a place of learning, cultural and recreational activities for many decades. Here, you’ll get to make the most of interactive learning in our immersive teaching rooms, connect with your peers in social spaces, and be part of a vibrant community precinct.
Our new campus is distinctive to the Cradle Coast - its shape reflects the headlands that stretch along the rugged Bass Strait coastline, while the green roof speaks to the rich North West landscapes. The Domestic Arts building - the last surviving structure from the original Burnie High School - lives on as an important feature of the campus, honouring the history of the site while celebrating its future.
Enjoy the neighbouring beach and boardwalk between classes, or head downtown to check out the nearby shopping district.
As part of our city move, we’re introducing an exciting range of courses that serve the region and allow people from our community to study closer to home.

Our university also has a presence at several other sites across the North West and West Coast.
You’ll find our Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA) and Atrium Apartments at Mooreville Road. We also have an Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) Facility in the heart of South Burnie’s industrial precinct, while our Rural Clinical School (RCS) has two campuses in Burnie and Latrobe. TIA has research facilities at Elliott and Forthside, and we also support community-based study centres in Zeehan and Smithton.
Situated at West Park, construction of Makers’ Workshop was completed in 2009 by Hobart-based architects Terroir.
The site is currently being reimagined into a vibrant new model that will continue contributing to the life and energy of Burnie.
Until the next chapter begins, Makers‘ Workshop is temporarily closed to the public. Visit Facebook for updates.
