Transforming our University

Together, we're reimagining education at our campuses

The community panel helping the Uni make a good move.

The Shake Up is an unvarnished conversation between the Uni and the community, where we’ll all talk about how the University is consolidating in Hobart’s CBD, and what the best version of that move looks like.

Providing a good education to as many Tasmanians as possible is at the heart of everything we do.

To strengthen and future-proof our ability to do this, we’re transforming our University. We’re building new pathways for our students, reflecting their changing needs, so that where you start in life does not define where you go.

Central to our vision is ensuring we have purpose fit facilities for modern learning, within the right locations.

Over the last 20 years, nearly half of all new jobs in Australia required a bachelor's degree or above.

This trend is set to continue as technology changes how we live and work – in the future most jobs will require some form of post-school education.

Only 21% of people living in Hobart have a university degree. When it comes to most areas outside of Hobart, this drops to below 10%.

And that’s what our transformation projects are all about – improving access to education for all.

Education strengthens peoples connection to their community.

Key outcomes

Improving accessibility

Relocating our campuses into the heart of each region's major city puts more students within easier reach of university, while improving flexibility for the majority of students with work and other commitments.

Strengthening partnerships

Greater proximity to government, education, industry and community organisations allows us to strengthen place-based partnerships and tackle complex social and economic challenges in an integrated way.

Delivering sustainability

Developing the next generation of facilities across our regions ensures our campuses are distinctive and environmentally sustainable, while offering opportunities to protect and enhance green spaces in our urban areas.

Our commitment to sustainability

Our commitment to reduce environmental impacts, achieve economic efficiency, demonstrate social responsibility and enhance student experience is at the forefront of everything we do.

The University of Tasmania was recognised as the 'Sustainability Institute of the Year' at the Green Gown Awards Australasia 2021, presented by Australasian Campuses Towards Sustainability.
