Going to uni is a great experience. But when you’re far from home it’s important not only to be in a great study environment but to have support on hand when you need it.
We have world-class infrastructure and support services across all our campuses, and we're continuing to invest in these – and introduce news ones - to ensure we provide the best educational and life experience during your time with us.
Our two main international campuses are located in Hobart (Sandy Bay) in the south and Launceston (Newnham) in the north. Satellite campuses are also scattered around both these cities.
Health, Wellbeing and Safety
More than 30,000 students study at the University of Tasmania, but we make sure that each and every person has access to help if and when they need it, whether it’s assistance with personal issues, health and disabilities, or spiritual matters.
We have a wide range of facilities across our campuses designed to provide additional support for you and to ensure your university experience is as smooth as possible. These include simple things, such as having a bank and bookshop, which specialises in academic texts, gym and childcare.
Starting at university is an exciting time and finding the right place to live is an important decision. Whether you’re studying in Hobart or Launceston, both cities and campuses have a range of accommodation options to suit your needs and wants. In recent years UTAS has been making multi-million dollar investments in new accommodation in Hobart and Launceston, which are designed to the highest standard and highly sought after.
Cultural & religious diversity
The University and community welcomes people of all faiths and races and there is no restriction on the wearing of religious clothing such as the hijab in Tasmania.There is a diversity of faiths within the University community and UTAS pastoral carers are based at both the Hobart and Launceston campuses.There is a new multi-faith centre at Sandy Bay and prayer rooms for Muslim students and staff at the Launceston and Hobart campuses. The Community Friends and Networks Programme and TUU Clubs and Societies can also help connect you to local religious and cultural groups and organisations.Halal and kosher foods are available at the major supermarkets and some speciality shops.
Starting university is a big step for all of us and more so when you have to adjust to a new country’s academic system and teaching methods. At the University of Tasmania, we make sure you have access to our Student Learning team so you can develop your academic skills, literacy and English language skills and get the most out of your experience.
