Venue hire

The University of Tasmania is not currently taking Venue Hire Bookings.  

This decision will be reviewed in November. 

If you are interested in hiring a University venue please check this site again after mid November 2020 for the latest information in relation to venue hire availability.  Thank you.

The Sandy Bay campus and the Centre for the Arts in Hobart, and the Newnham campus in Launceston have designated venues available for hire. Most venues are available for hire after hours, on weekends and during semester break periods. Some venues may be available during the day, depending on the University timetable.

Venues include lecture theatres with contemporary audio visual equipment, seminar rooms and foyer spaces. On-site catering can be arranged for most venues if required. Venues are suitable for public lectures, training workshops and presentations, award ceremonies, conferences and concerts.

Council requirements for selling food

If you wish to sell food at your event, you may need to comply with a range of local Council regulations.

Each council has a website which provides advice on things you need to know about operating a food premise as well the requirements for selling pre packed foods at food stalls, markets and fairs. Note: TUU affiliated societies do not need to apply for a food permit if their functions are within the Hobart City Council's municipal area.

Venue safety induction

The person responsible for the function will need to complete the online safety induction for UTAS venues.
