Students safety, health and wellbeing are a priority for the University of Tasmania.
Currently there are a number of social expectations and concerns that affect our community, both here in Australia and overseas.
The University has taken steps to address some of these recent concerns and have developed some new policies and support structures to assist students who may be affected by these concerns.

We want to provide a safe and healthy environment for everyone. To support this, smoking and vaping are no longer permitted on any of our campuses, and we are a smoke-free university.
