The University of Tasmania's Sandy Bay campus is in the beachside suburb of Sandy Bay, five minutes' drive south of the city centre. This scenic campus is close to shops, transport, accommodation, entertainment and services and is just a short walk from the Hobart CBD.
The University also has significant teaching and research facilities in the Hobart CBD:
- The Conservatorium of Music
- The School of Creative Arts and Media and Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies located on Hobart's waterfront
- The Medical Sciences Precinct and the Domain, which are home to the College of Health and Medicine and the Menzies Research Institute.
Additionally, the College of Sciences and Engineering has off-campus facilities in the south, including the University Farm near Richmond, the University's observatories and the Grote Reber Physics Museum.
The University is planning further expansion of facilities in the Hobart CBD, with the The Hedberg due to be completed in 2019.
